This is the best oatcake recipe. It has the perfect balance between salt and sweet. This recipe comes from the Cape Breton Highlands in Nova Scotia. It is a traditional treat as we have a strong Scottish culture in this province.
If you ever travel to Cape Breton the must see destinations are the Cabot Trail scenic drive, Baddeck and Sydney, Nova Scotia's third largest city.
