well, i tried one that used both steel cut oats and oat 
flour and i personally thought it a bit too dense for 
general consumption, altho just one wasn't bad.   flavor 
was good.  needed more sald.   guinea pig thought it 
needed some sweet/honey in the batter.

i am trying one i found in the florilegium, close to 
lindow man's pancake referenece in Life and Death of a 
Druid Prince.  more of a cooked dough than a batter.  and 
i have several other batter and fry pancake style recipes 
as well.

i think i also had the problem with the beloved guinea pig 
expecting something more fritter/pancake like than the 
recipe was.  when i informed him that 'monks lived off 
this kind of stuff' he replied 'no wonder they were so 
dour.' 8)

so with a few more recipes to try, i think it is just 
hitting on the best of both worlds.  a true balancing act
