The bext biscuits in existence are these , even though they are called cakes. My mother-in-law has been going on for years about oatcakes. The Scots have them with breakfast, lunch and dinner , she said. They are a staple in certain parts of Caledonia , she said. They are delicious , she said. She was right. It's just that the name - 'oatcakes' - makes them sound like bircher muesli or wholemeal scones or hunza pie or similar horrors (I actually quite like bircher muesli). But oatcakes are not like that at all! Try this recipe for the perfect Scottish supper for two anywhere in the world (it helps if it is winter): Go for a walk along the wild ocean coast, after an early dinner, when the sky is just a strip of fading gold beneath a massive black cloud merging into the darkening sky, like a blind drawn down to within an inch of the window in a lit room. Return with an appetite. Lay six oatcakes on a plate. Drape two with smoked atlantic salmon. Spread two with cream cheese.
