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...?
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
Directions See How It's Made
- Sift flour, bicarb soda and sugar together in a large bowl.
- In a seperate bowl combine the egg, milk and vinegar.
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and whisk well until smooth. Add the melted butter and mix well.
- Heat a pan over moderate heat, melt a small amount of butter in it.
- Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the top. Flip piklets and fry on other side until golden.
