Unlike American pancakes, the Australian pikelets can be purchased ready-made in grocery stores. You can eat the cold or hot and they are typically topped with cream, jam, fruit or butter and sugar! They are handle for snacks and lunches. I found these on an Australian website. Enjoy!

Holy pikelets batman! These were soooooo good. I loved how fluffly they became while cooking. They were very flavorful, too, with addition of vanilla and butter. Yummy. I subbed the rice milk for milk and it worked beautifully. My kids will request these pancakes often! Made for ZWT8 Australia/NZ regions. Thank you mate!
