I can't believe that noone else has posted the humble pikelet, a mini-pancake. I like mine with plain butter on top or with raspberry jam and a blob of cream a la a Devonshire tea. Perfect to have with a cup of tea for afternoon tea.
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup milk (approx)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 ounce butter (optional)
- Beat the egg and sugar until thick and add with the milk to the sifted flour, salt and baking powder.
- Add the melted butter last.
- Mix until smooth and cook in spoonfuls on a hot greased griddle or frypan.
So easy and the whole family loved them. Nice and crispy on the outside , soft and fluffy on the inside . A winner!
This is the recipe I use except I dissolve the baking soda in the milk and add the flour gradually followed by the milk gradually mixing after each addition. I have made my husband addicted to them as I live in the US now and they dont know what they are here. =)
This is a great simple Pikelet recipe. They are easy to make and easy to cook, and taste great. The only thing I changed is the heat I cooked it on. You said to cook in a hot frypan, but I found they burnt too easy and didnt get that gorgeous golden surface. I found that once I turned my heat right down to almost a low setting they came out beautifully. Im giving you 4 stars for this!! :D
