I’ve started my week on a whim making these fluffy pikelets for lunch! Usually a salad or croissan’wich is in order – but with my babbling bubba on the bench beside me, I felt like I wanted something quick and easy and totally mashable by her teeny tiny little hands and toothless gums (well those 2 bottom front teeth don’t chew). She got a little peanut butter spread onto her pikelets which she loved as that sweet, sticky paste got between her fingers 🙂
And of course I got Nutella on mine topped with pomegranate arils to bounce the sweetness and add a pop of fresh to the pikelet.
All of this was also a little practice run for Wednesday when I have my family over for afternoon tea to celebrate turning my little deck into a miniature backyard – but more on that another time. Until then, enjoy these little gems – topped with jam and butter/cream, Nutella and berries, or cheese and honey 🙂
1 cup self-raising flour
1 tablespoon sugar (I confess I put 2)
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 cup milk (or as needed to make the batter as thick as you like)
Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and make a well in the centre.
Add wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.
Heat a non stick frypan over medium heat. Brush the frypan with a little melted butter or coat with cooking spray. Drop the mixture by large spoonfuls until about 5cm across. Flip when bubbles appear on the surface, and cook until browned on the other side.
Serve and enjoy! 🙂
