    Catherine Robson's Note:

    Yummy golden little pancakes served warm with jam or honey. Every Australian would have made these many times throughout their youth. My son had his little friend over today and I ended up making a second batch because the boys gobbled them up and begged for more.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 large egg
    • 1/4 cup sugar (use vanilla sugar if you have it, or as some reviewers have suggested ...add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of va)
    • 1/2 cup milk (1-2 tbsp extra may be required for correct consistency)
    • 1 cup self raising flour


    1. 1
      In a pouring jug, whisk together well the egg, sugar and half of the milk.
    2. 2
      Add the flour and mix thoroughly.
    3. 3
      Then add milk until the batter is the consistency of a thick cream.
    4. 4
      Beat until smooth.
    5. 5
      Pour about a soup spoon sized amount onto a preheated lightly greased frypan (You will need to start about medium high heat but after a few rounds you will need to drop it back to medium).
    6. 6
      Flip with a spatula when the top is all bubbly (should be a lovely golden colour), and cook the other side.
    7. 7
      Remove from pan and pile piklets up on a plate (cover with a paper towel so they don't go rubbery).
    8. 8
      Serve with jam, honey or maple syrup etc.

      These have to be cooked in butter! My kids LOVE these. They are great in lunch boxes and freeze well too. A great recipe that requires only a few ingredients and creates a fabulous snack.

      I reviewed these with 5 stars in march, as an australian they were a childhood treat. ..... I just made another batch (as i do every day its cold) and replaced the sugar with half a mashed banana, also added vanilla. These were for our 21mth old son but now i have to make more, they are gorgeous. LOVE the banana in them.

      I forgot to mention that I needed a little more milk than listed to come to a workable consistency but this wasn't a big issue and all worked out well. Just wanted to mention this incase others had the same problem.
