Bread. Oaten bake.
To make an oaten cake, first I put the oaten meal into a dish and mix about one teaspoonful of salt and a teaspoonful of sugar and mix it with the hand. Then I get a bowlful of lukewarm water to wet the meal and then mix it thoroughly with the hand and put it on a bread-board and knead it out thin. Then I leave it there for a few hours. Then it is placed in front of the fire on a griddle which is made of iron. It is 12 inches long and about 10 inches wide with a leg standing at the back it is left there for a few hours to bake. My mother makes griddle oaten bread sometimes. I bring it for my lunch to school with or without butter and find I can fast a long time on it. Runners often take oaten bread when practising for a race as it is supposed to keep their "wind".
