Oat cakes utensils - and Robert Burns
UTENSILS USED IN MAKING OAT-CAKES, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES
"Our first illustration [above] shows a few utensils used in making oat-cakes, a “cat,” and a beer-warmer. Cycling in Derbyshire [England] a few years ago, I halted at a wayside cottage for a cup of tea. The good house wife was making oat-cake in a way that I had not before seen.
The batter, or whatever the mixture of meal and milk may be called, was poured on to a flat stone under which a flue ran.
