Smaller than pancakes, and fluffier than crepes, pikelets make a great breakfast, brunch or after-school snack! Traditionally served with jam and cream, but we also love them with a hearty dollop of our unbeatable lemon curd.
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 lightly beaten egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 30 gram butter, melted
- jam, whipped cream, to serve
Sift flour and soda together into a medium bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in centre. Gradually stir in egg and enough milk for a smooth, pouring consistency. Rest 15 minutes.
Heat a large, non-stick frying pan on medium. Brush with butter. Working in 3 batches of 6, drop tablespoons of batter into pan, allowing room for spreading. Cook 1-2 minutes, until bubbles appear on surface. Turn and cook 1 minute further, until golden. Brush pan with butter between batches.
Transfer cooked pikelets to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.
