A quick one today as I’m down with my family in Gloucestershire, but these were another delicious discovery from Glebe Farm Shop outside Congleton – pikelets with raisins. 

I remember pikelets as a child, but I’m pretty sure they were supermarket versions which were like flat crumpets.  These pikelets were more like a scotch pancake and studded with raisins.  We just popped them in the toaster and slathered them with salty butter.


Today I went to Biddulph Grange Garden in North Staffordshire – to write up a piece for the sustainable food newsletter I edit in my volunteer role at the National Trust.  I would highly recommend visiting the gardens here if you are in the area or looking for a day out – they are utterly breathtaking. My photos don’t do it justice.

But what I wanted to share was my discovery of Staffordshire oatcakes.  They are a bit like a pancake or crepe, and I tried them for lunch in the National Trust tearoom, rolled up with cheese inside and heated until piping hot.

All the cheese was oozing out the ends – delicious.  They were really quite tasty, especially with all that melted cheese – I must investigate how else you can use them and what other ingredients you can stuff inside them.  I’m assuming most things, but I wonder if there are traditional ways of eating them. 

Luckily I was able to buy myself a packet of Staffordshire oatcakes from Glebe Farm Shop in Astbury.  I was told they were locally made in Congleton, freezeable, and I can’t wait to try them out at home.
