Herring in Oatmeal.

Allow 2 herrings per person
Coarse oatmeal
Salt and pepper
Beef dripping or cooking oil

Depending on how your fishmonger supplies the herring, you may have to remove the bones yourself.
Cut along the underside of the herring, lay it on a table, cut side down and hit across the backbone in a few places with a rolling pin or your hand.
Remove the backbone and as many of the smaller bones as possible. Scrape the scales from the fish with a knife, remove heads and tails.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and either toss them in a plastic bag with plenty of oatmeal or put the fish on a plate and coat them with oatmeal. you may have to press the oatmeal into the fish to ensure it is fully covered. Lightly fry in meat dripping or cooking oil, place the fish skin side upwards first.
Fry until lightly brown, turn and cook the other side. It should take 5/7 minutes. Drain the fish on kitchen paper (paper towels).

Rich, fruit cake topped with almonds.


8oz (226gm) Flour

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl.
When it is white and creamy, slowly add the four eggs (one at a time), plus a spoonful of flour with each beating well all the time. Stir in the nuts and fruits. Add the rest of the flour, (sifted with the baking powder) and the whisky.
Make sure the mixture is stirred well right to the foot of the bowl. If it is too stiff, add a little milk.

Place mixture in an 8inch (203mm) greased and lined cake tin. Flatten the top with hands which should be slightly wet.

Cover with foil or greaseproof paper and bake at 325F (170C) or gas mark 3 for two hours. Halfway through, take off the foil and arrange the split almonds in concentric circles on the top of the cake.

Enjoy the cake.

No Scottish breakfast would be complete without Tattie scones - Tattie being a Potato. There are many Scottish recipes for Tattie Scones but this is the one I use.

These complete a Scottish breakfast consisting of Square Sausage, bacon, Eggs, Mushrooms, Tomato, Black pudding and of course Tattie Scones.


    1lb/500g potatoes, cooked and mashed
    1 oz/30g butter, melted plus extra for greasing
    1/2tsp salt
    4 oz/125g flour, plus a little extra for rolling out
    1tsp baking powder


Preheat the oven to 395°F/200°C/Gas 6

Place the mashed potato in a large baking bowl and add all the other ingredients to form a sticky dough.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface to approx ½ inch/1 cm thickness. Cut into saucer sized rounds then score a cross into the dough to mark 4 equal 

Grease a baking sheet with butter and bake the scones for 15 minutes until golden brown and risen. The scones can also be cooked on the stove top on a griddle or heavy based frying pan. Cook the scones 5 minutes on either side until golden and risen

Eat while warm.
