    Chrissyo's Note:

    This is a recipe from a collection of hand me down recipes for good old fashioned Aussie cooking. I have no idea where this recipe originated. My mother always used soured milk to make light tasty pikelets.

    1. 1
      Sift the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda together into a medium sized bowl.
    2. 2
      Make a well in the centre, add the sugar, egg, soured milk and the melted butter.
    3. 3
      Stir gradually, drawing in the flour from the sides, to make a smooth batter.
    4. 4
      Put tablespoonfuls of the batter on to a hot, greased griddle or fry pan.
    5. 5
      If the batter thickens while cooking the pikelets just add a little more milk.
    6. 6
      Use enough milk to make the batter the original consistency.
    7. 7
      Cook each pikelet until bubbles appear on top and brown underneath.
    8. 8
      Turn the pikelet to brown the other side.
    9. 9
      Continue until all the batter is used.
    10. 10
      Serve with strawberry jam and cream.

      Perfect! I'd forgotten about Shrove Tuesday when menu planning and these were a great after-school treat for us - my boys had them with a drizzle of honey while I'm a traditionalist and had jam and whipped cream. Nom nom nom....

      Thanks Chrissyo for bringing back many childhood memories of these being made by my mum :) I haven't made pikelets since the kids grew up...LOL However yesterday I went to a friends and she had made some so of course when I got home I made some too:) So easy to make and nice and light. They were just as good today just buttered with a coffee. I didn't top with jam & cream like my friend as I thought I wouldn't have too much of a good thing LOL :)
