The Great Australian Pikelets

READY IN: 25mins


  • 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)


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