    Makes: 24 pikelets

    • 125g self-raising flour
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
    • 125ml milk, or as needed

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Sift the flour into a medium bowl, and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre, and add the egg. Stir with a wooden spoon while gradually pouring in the milk until you reach the consistency that you prefer. Thicker pikelets will need a thick batter, while thin pikelets will need a thin batter. Stir in melted butter last, beating until smooth.
    2. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Coat lightly with oil. Drop by large spoonfuls onto the hot pan. Pikelets should be about 5cm across. Flip when bubbles appear on the surface, and cook until browned on the other side.

    The best pikelets I've tasted yet. I did just add in 1 tsp of baking soda to make sure they were fluffy. Brilliant recipe will be using again and again.  -  01 Jan 2014


    Just to let everyone know as the original submitter of this recipe, pikelets are not meant to be eaten as a breakfast food like pancakes. They are meant to be eaten at morning tea, tea parties, birthday parties, lunch and just as a treat or snack. It is fine if you like to use the recipe for a pancake, but originally you had them for brunch with cups of tea or coffee. Kids love them at birthday parties. Spread the pikelets with jam and put on top a big dollop of whipped cream.  -  13 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
