Today is my daughter's 20th birthday. I baked this Oatcakes for her today.
You must be wondering why I am not baking a real cake.
Reason is that I wanted to bake something that she likes and also she can
bring to college as snack while studying, revision or mooting.
About my daughter's Moot National Competition. Well, she and her team
had gained into the 1st preliminary round, yesterday at the
Kuala Lumpur Regional Arbitration Center. The competition was held from
8am until 6pm (so long hours). Anyway, proud of her and her team.
Well, wishing them again for the next round.
She nearly back out from this competition, told her that if bro (her brother)
can do it, why can't you? My husband and I are very proud of our two children.
Wishing my dear daughter a very Happy Birthday and may you be blessed
with wonderful years ahead.
You must be wondering why this recipe is not named Oat Biscuit or Cookie?
I adapted this recipe from Nigella Lawson, How To Be A Domestic Goddess.
I double all the ingredients.
Original recipe :-
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats.
pinch of salt / 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
1 tablespoon lard or butter (melted) - I used butter.
6 - 14 tablespoons very hot water - I used 7 tablespoons.
Put the oats in a bowl and add the salt and baking soda. Combined well.
Make a well in the middle and pour in the butter.
Make again a well in the middle and pour enough hot water to mix to
a stiff dough.
Knead it for a while to make it come smoothly together.
Roll out as thinly as you can.
Place the cut oatcakes on top of an ungreased baking sheet and
bake at 30 minutes or until the edges are turning golden brown.
Once baked, removed to a wire rack to cool. (it will crisp up on cooling)
My dear daughter definitely will be having a gala time drinking her favourite
Nescafe Dolce Gusto Chococino drink while eating this specially baked
