Place the Oatmeal in a mixing bowl with 1 & 1/4 cups of the buttermilk and the sunflower oil. Allow to steep for about 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375°F .

Sieve the flour, bread soda and salt and add to the steeped oatmeal. Mix to a loose dough, adding the remaining buttermilk as required.

Turn the dough on to a lightly floured surface and flatten to about 1 inch in thickness.

Cut out the scones using a knife and place on a baking tray lined with parchment.
