It's no secret in our house that I am a huge piklete fan.
I could probably eat a whole batch on my own.
Fleur shares my obsession, we often whip up a batch of these babies and a pot of tea.
Fleur likes tea
1 sugar please....
It's funny, pikelets are one of thoses things that vary from family to family,
a bit like lasagne or gravy...you know what I'm saying?
Over the years I've tried various different recipes, but the most recent is a beauty...
Well in my opinion anyway!
They're light, fluffy & evenly brown all over.
1/4 C castor sugar
3/4 C milk
1/4 tsp baking soda
*1 C self raising flour
1Tbsp melted butter
Beat egg and sugar till fluffy ( my Mum who made amazing pikelets always said you have to "beat the shit out of the egg & sugar!") Measure the milk & add the soad to it. Wisk sifted flour gradually into your egg mix alternatly with your milk & soda mix. Beat well to combine and then lastly add your melted butter. Drop spoon fulls onto your fan and flip when bubbles appear.
* I never have self raising flour, I just use plain flour with 1 tsp of baking powder.
*I always find the first batch (pan full) of pikelets tend to be the test batch and usually burn a little untill I have the temp just right, I use an old enamel cast iron pan and don't add any more butter to the pan after that first initial batch.
Happy cooking xx
