In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together until smooth, then pour it into the crumbly flour mix. Stir it through until you have a sticky dough. Scrape the dough into the prepared tin and smooth down the top, them sprinkle a handful of oats over the top and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
