"My grandma's recipe. These are so yummy, I just pick them up and eat them with my fingers (not very ladylike I know) but is great served with cream and berries or ice cream or however you like them really. These are even lovely cold, take along to picnics and spread with jam and a little cream, or just jam by itself."

Ready In:




  • Mix all of ingredients.
  • Cook like pikelets.
  • (Take a tablespoon of the batter at a time and drop in a frypan with butter and basically cook as if it were an American pancake - brown underneath and then turn over - should be a lot smaller than normal pancakes).

  1. Scrumpy pikelets, they tasted just how I remember having them for smoko (morning tea for anyone out side of NZ) in the shearing shed as a kid, thank you for the easy receipe!
  2. great simple recipe. . just like Mum used to make!
  3. I used this recipe to show my daughter how to make pikelets. They were perfect & yummy! Thank you.
  4. 5 stars for "how easy the pikelets are to be made". They are really easy to make and the outcome was perfect. I made them small and served them with a simple strawberry puree and fresh strawberries. They were great. In the pan they developed a very fluffy texture and they were easy to handle. As this is a very basic recipe I could imagine to do a lot of different things with them, e.g. falvouring with vanilla or cinnamon. Next time I will also serve some whipped cream with them. A great and foolproofed recipe. fast to make. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Perfect!! I may have added a little extra milk to get a better pouring consistancy. We love to have these for breakfast served with jam or just plain ol' butter. When I know they will be eaten cold straight from the lunchbox I up the sugar slightly as the kids like them with just butter. Made for ZWT3.


  1. Wow! These were awesome! Easy, Quick and everyone loved them! I sifted all of the dry ingredients together and added the melted butter to the other wet ingredients before mixing everything together. EXCELLENT! I made a second batch for me since I'm diabetic and used 1 1/2 tsp. of Stevia instead of sugar. These weren't as sweet but were still pretty good. Thanks for a keeper!


I lived in new zealand for 8 years of my life, now england for the past 8 years. I go to boarding school on the east coast of england. I have friends from all over the world, my best friend is canadian and also lived in france, so her mum and her for that fact, are mean chefs, boy do i like going to her house. I recently found out I am intollerant to wheat so have found it difficult to give up such easy foods to find and now have to search harder. I also have 2 leaks in my heart, one on a valve going in and one on a valve going out. A top carteoligist from London told me as long as I don't get pregnant for a while (I should hope not, I'm only 15) or eat fatty foods, my heart would do allright. He said he didn't want to operate on me yet, beacause there is a operation coming in the next 10 years which is lazer, so he wants me to wait, but he said I was fit and healthy and had no need to worry, yet....... when i was younger i dreamed of being a choreographer or a marine biolagist, then i wanted to work for vouge magazine, then get married and move to barbados and raise a family where the only thing that passes anyones lips will be home grown or hand made, a bit ambitious i know, hehe. But now my dream is to be a laywer and help others that really need it, and hopefully move back to my roots and bring up a family there For lent i have given up refined sugars and it is so hard and i am only 3 days into it, i was starving at school, opened my tuk box only to find marshmallows and smarties and a box of cereal, i think cereal is about to become my best friend over the next 6 weeks. LOL EDITED 30TH AUGUST; Last night at 3:30am, my best friend lost her battle to cancer and it has made me realise how important it is to live life to the full and take every opportunity thrown at us. She was a special girl and only 15 - wherever she is now though, she is out of her suffering. I have no doubt that she went straight to heaven. Lord rest your soul. i also have a lot of favourite sayings, here are some of them "shoot for the moon, even if you don't make it, you'll land amoung the stars" "I'm on a seafood diet, see food and eat it" "smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, when someone smiled at me today, i started smiling too, i passed around the corner and someone saw me grin, when he smiled i realised, i'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile, then i realised it's worth, a single smile just like mine could pass around the earth. So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave undetected. Lets start an epedemic quick, and get the world infected!!!"
