Pikelets or pancakes? Here in Australia I've had people call them both. These to me are more pikelets as they are heavier than a standard pancake you would find at the Pancake Kitchen for example. Either way they are delicious and a great snack treat!
Ingredients: Makes 12 - 16
- 2 x Cups Of Self Raising Flour
- 1/2 Cup Of Sugar
- 1 x Egg
- 2 - 2 1/2 Cup Of Milk
- Butter or Spray Oil for your pan
- 1/4 Cup Measuring Cup
- Your choice of something to serve with your pikelets eg lemon, sugar, maple syrup, jam & cream, fruit, spreads etc
1. In a bowl put in your ingredients self raising flour, sugar, egg and ONLY 2 CUPS OF MILK for now.
2. Use a blender and mix your ingredients well. If you find your batter too thick add some more milk.
3. Heat a frying pan on the stove on a high heat then reduce to medium. Either spray with oil or put in a little butter spreading it to cover the entire pan.
4. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop some batter and drop into your hot pan at least 2cm apart to allow for spreading. Use the measuring cup to keep similar size.
5. When you see bubbles in the batter its time to flip your pikelets. Your underside should be a nice golden colour. So look out for that on the next side to know when cooked. Take out when cooked and sit on a plate to cool as needed. Between cooking you may need to reapply your butter/spray oil.
6. Serve plain or with anything you like! lemon, sugar, maple syrup, jam & cream, fruit, spreads etc
Tip – You can freeze any left over in a airtight ziplock bag or container. Pull out of the freezer a couple of hours before you would like them. They can be reheated in a microwave or in the oven if you wish.
