About this recipe: This is a great recipe (particularly if you use duck eggs). It is not necessary to leave in fridge for 2 hours, particularly if you are like me, and want something in a hurry. Leave stand for 5 to 15 minutes in the fridge while you 'do the washing up'. I generally do a double mixture, because these are so popular, so consequently I can make up to 4 dozen or slightly more. Nice to eat on their own, or serve with jam and cream.


Makes: 24 pikelets

  • 3 eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 190g self-raising flour

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr20min 

  1. Mix all ingredients together until smooth and refrigerate mixture for 2 hours.
  2. Drop tablespoonfuls of mixture onto a heated and greased flat pan. Flip when bubbles appear in surface of pikelet. Remove from pan when done and repeat with remaining mixture, ensuring pan remains greased each time.

Amazing! Very easy to make. I let the batter rest in the fridge for the full two hours and was very pleased with the results. So light and fluffy! Thank you for posting this recipe! - 24 Oct 2013
