One bite of these buttery, crisp and flaky oatcakes will transport you to Effie’s farmhouse kitchen. Made by two best friends from mother Effie’s fourth generation family recipe, these lightly sweetened biscuits taste of pure homemade goodness.
I received a package of these Oatcakes in my December Goodies Box.
These Oatcakes go great with a cup of hot tea … a delightful breakfast or tea-time treat! I like them with this New Vithanakanda Ceylon from Kally Tea. The flavor of the tea is bold enough to enjoy with a dense “cookie” like this, and the two complemented each other quite nicely.
What I Think:
I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect from these before I opened the package, but I was definitely intrigued!
They look a bit like … well, I guess they are aptly named, because they look like what I would think an oatcake would look like. They look like cookie bars with visible bits of oats baked in them.
They taste a bit like a cross between a granola bar and an oatmeal cookie, with the texture of a crisp oatmeal cookie. I can taste the salt, and the sweetness. I taste the oats, but it doesn’t have a really mealy texture … not bad … not bad at all! In fact, I really like these!
My Final Thoughts:
These are really tasty. I saw an Oatcakes display when I was at Chuck’s Produce the last time I shopped there, so I think I might take a closer look next time I’m there and maybe pick up another package of them, because these definitely belong on the “I’d eat them again” list! I’m also interested in trying their Nutcakes and their Semolina Crackers (the lavender flavor is especially intriguing!
