how to make pikelets

These deliciously fluffy spikelets are a family favourite. Five simple ingredients and they're ready in a flash!


1 egg

3 tbs sugar

1/2 cup milk

1 cup self raising flour

2 tsp butter, melted


Whisk the egg , sugar and half the milk in a bowl. Add the flour and stir to combine.

Add the remaining milk until the batter is the consistency of thick cream. Add the melted butter and whisk until smooth.

Pour tablespoonfuls into a hot oiled fry pan. When the surface becomes bubbly, turn with a spatula. Cook the other side until golden.

Serve with your choice of toppings. (We like jam and cream, blueberries and ricotta or lemon and sugar.)
