I bought a 1/2 gallon of buttermilk for $.90 (clearance). I can make 2-3 meals from it. One meal I made was Buttermilk Oatcakes. I served this with scrambled, farm fresh eggs (with peppers and onion).
I found this recipe in Eating Well's magazine, march/april 2012 issue. These are wonderful. I did have to double this for my family.
(adapted with organic ingredients)
2 cups buttermilk (or plain kefir)
1 large organic egg
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground organic cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt.
Whisk buttermilk and egg. Combine other ingredients in a medium bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet, and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Coat a griddle with non-stick spray and pour oatcakes by 1/4 cup each. Cook about 3 minutes (or more) and flip.
Note: I did have to reduce my heat after the first batch. They brown faster than they cook.
We found the following recipe in Woman's Day Magazine (June 2012).
