Pikelets are a great morning breakfast treat hot from the pan or cool down and serve with cream and jam for an afternoon tea.

Prep time:   15 minutes
Cook time:   15 minutes
Servings:   4

1 cup self raising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
plus butter for cooking

1. Sift flour into a mixing bowl and add sugar. Mix together egg and milk and whisk into flour.
2. Melt butter in your pan and add to mixture.
3. Add 2 tablespoons of mixture for each pikelet to the heated pan. Cook for approximately 2 minutes on medium heat, until bubbles appear on the surface of the pikelet. Turn over pikelet and cook until other side is golden.
4. Serve with your favourite jam and some more butter.

Other serving suggestions

-Add pieces of fruit into your pikelet mix (like banana or blue berries)
-Serve with slices of lemon and sugar to sprinkle, maple syrup (very American but delicious), fresh strawberries and cream, ricotta and marmalade

      I needed quick recipe, was not until I made a batch with this recipe and had my first bite..... No salt! Must always have a pinch of salt in picklets, for that error 4 out of 10

      This is the exact recipe I use. I'm a Kiwi living in Canada. I like them cooled with butter, raspberry jam and sometimes whipped cream. My wife's favourite way of eating them is fresh from the griddle with butter melting on them and my son's favourite way is hot with butter and golden syrup.
      Incidentally, most Americans use "table syrup" which is a sort of artificially maple-flavoured sugar syrup. Only a minority of them use the real thing. Canadians are far more likely to use the real stuff.

      Very easy to follow and doesn't take long to make, just that it was a little bit runny but it was all good and yummy and smooth. Thumbs up from me and my husband. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

      I think she meant a lot of americans enjoy it with maple syrup

      80% of the world production of maple syrup comes from Quebec not "America", so Canadian would be preferable.
