Honey & Oat cakes

A one time donation to help fund the blog and associated materials



  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 200g honey
  • 500g oats
  • 1/4 cup of liquid (braggot, ale, mead, milk etc)
  • 1 apple (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Melt the butter in a pan. Stir in the honey, followed by the rest of the ingredients.

Mix together well and leave to cool. Once cool, split the mixture into even sized amounts. Roll into balls and squash each ball as flat as possible.

Cook for a few minutes on each side on a hot griddle or frying pan.

Watch them carefully, or they will burn.

Alternatively heat your oven to 170 degrees and cook in the centre of the oven for approx 10 – 15 minutes, until firm and golden in colour.

Leave to cool fully before eating, as they will firm up when cool.
