These were really great. My daughters loved the chocolate pikelets with strawberry jam and a little whipped cream. We often have reguar pikelets but haven't tried a chocolate version before. A simple budget conscious dessert or even a quick chocolate fix when you cant be bothered going shopping as this recipe uses pantry staples.

Wonderful topped with jam!! I tried one plain, too; wasn't sweet enough for me. Easy to make, and I agree, so pretty!
