This is my Nan's recipe. Old-fashioned recipes always taste the best, which is definatley the case for these piklets! The batter may be a bit thick so add a little more milk to get it to the consistency you prefer.

Very nice, just what I was looking for...a good basic piklet recipe! Liked the vinegar in there too...made them a wee bit lighter than usual. I wonder why there is only 1 piklet recipe on recipezaar...?
