High Lane Oatcakes was established in June 1980, taking over an existing bakery, which went back over 100 years, and was using the original recipe, which we bought with the business.
The more we got involved in the making of the oatcakes we began to experiment with the ingredients, to try to enhance the Oatcake taste, texture and appearance.After numerous tasting sessions amongst friends, and ourselves we finally arrived at what we believe to be the ideal oatcake. The trusted recipe we developed is the same recipe we use today.
The Staffordshire Oatcake, a regional delicacy exclusive to the Potteries area of Staffordshire until recently, are now available by mail order, through our family run Oatcake Bakery, first established over 80 years ago. Staffordshire Oatcakes are similar to a pancake but made from white flour, oatmeal and yeast etc. Oatcake bakers have their own closely guarded recipe. The Oatcake (Peculiar to the potteries area of Stoke on Trent) has to be one of the most versatile food products on the market today, being as an alternative to bread and breakfast with bacon, cheese, egg, beans, mushrooms etc, or as a vehicle for fast food outlets where the ingredients are placed on an oatcake, which is then rolled and microwave in seconds. The Oatcake as well as being delicious as a savory dish is also excellent as a sweet course, e.g. lay out oatcake flat, sprinkle with brown sugar, slice a banana into two, long ways and add one half of banana to sugared oatcake, add chopped hazel nuts (optional) and roll up oatcake.
Make a basic sugar sauce by slowly adding brown sugar to water and small amount of orange juice and gently boiling until sugar has dissolved, finally pour sugar sauce over oatcake and place in oven or microwave until warmed through.
