More local creations

We are delighted to be suppliers of handmade Derbyshire Oatcakes and Pikelets from The Derbyshire Oatcake & Pikelet Co.

 

For many the word ‘oatcake’ conjures an image of the dry, savoury Scottish biscuit, but our historic Derbyshire version is a much different creation. 

 

With historical mentions dating as far back as the 1600s, this simple yet delicious type of pancake is made from a fermented mixture of oatmeal, wheat flour and yeast that is cooked in a dry pan.

 

Pikelets, on the other hand, are made from flour, yeast, milk and salt and resemble a flattened crumpet. There are records of them being produced and sold in Derbyshire for well over a hundred years.

 

Both of these savoury delights have stood the test of time and work just as well with traditional topping and fillings as with new ones.
