Making an Oaten Cake

Lettera, Co. Galway

To make a cake of this kind 2 plates of oaten meal were placed in a basin with some sugar and a pinch of soda. This was left on a breadboard and flattened out and then under a fire until it stiffened and after coals were placed under the grid-iron and the cake placed on top.
