"Griddle cakes
Spelt flour
Sugar and/or honey
Rolled oats
Dried fruit
Milk or water
This is how axebreaker made griddle cakes, based on three or four recipes I found online. I didn't weigh the ingredients, I just went by what looked right.
First put 1 part butter, 1 part sugar and 2 parts flour into a mixing bowl or trough. Add a blob of honey. Rub in until you get even breadcrumbs (like when you make pastry). Add extra flour/butter as needed. Add a little milk or water to bind into a dough - not too much or it will become sticky. Knead briefly.
Add as many oats and dried fruit as you like and knead into the dough. Take small balls of the dough and flatten into rounds (3-4 mm thick). Melt some butter on a griddle or in a flat pan, and drop the cakes in. Turn every 30 seconds - 1 minute until both sides are nicely browned. Eat while still hot!"
