Americans make their own version, much larger of course, and known as pancakes.
When my grandson, Jackson visited when he was three years of age I introduced him to pikelets. They soon became a firm favourite and it is a given that when Nana visits there will be pancakes.
This year Jackson, now seven, is coming to visit with us (Mom and Dad are coming too). 'Pancakes' have already been requested and much anticipated so I made a batch today for the freezer so we can be sure not to disappoint when family arrive this week.
