We went out looking for some garage sale bargains and in the process I neglected to have breakfast.
By the time we got home I was very hungry but it seemed too late to be having breakfast.
Instead I made pikelets (small pancakes) for morning tea but when I came to the end of the mixture I made one large pikelet, topped it with sliced banana, muesli and golden syrup.
I guess my breakfast became brunch and it was very nice.
Heat fry pan to moderately hot and, using paper towel, wipe with small amount of melted butter
Melt 30 grams butter and hold
1 cup self raising flour
1 dessertspoon sugar
1 pinch salt
Place ingredients in bowl and add -
1 cup milk
Mix thoroughly with wire whisk and add the melted butter.
Put dessertspoons of batter into moderately hot pan (6 to 7 for each lot) and when bubbles rise to the surface of the batter they are ready for turning.
When nicely browned on both sides put aside on to a plate that had a tea towel folded in half. Place the pikelets between the layers of the tea towel while you continue cooking.
Keeping the pikelets like this in the tea towel ensures a little bit of steaming and keeps the pikelets nice and soft.
Serve with butter or butter and jam of your choice and enjoy.
These have been a family favourite for years and years.
Best eaten fresh but can be frozen and eaten later.
