Recipe by mortarandpestle

My mum's failsafe recipe for pikelets - I can eat these all day. (*Note: If you dont have buttermilk you can make a substitute with 1tsp vinegar/lemon juice into 1/2 cup of plain milk)

Reviewed for PAC April 2012- An easy recipe for an old fashioned favourite. My mixture was a little thick at added in some extra buttermilk. Enjoyed especially by my youngest daughter. Photo also to be posted
