The Great Australian Pikelets

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Catherine Robson

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.

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

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

Directions

  1. In a pouring jug, whisk together well the egg, sugar and half of the milk.
  2. Add the flour and mix thoroughly.
  3. Then add milk until the batter is the consistency of a thick cream.
  4. Beat until smooth.
  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. Flip with a spatula when the top is all bubbly (should be a lovely golden colour), and cook the other side.
  7. Remove from pan and pile piklets up on a plate (cover with a paper towel so they don't go rubbery).
  8. Serve with jam, honey or maple syrup etc.
  9. Enjoy.
