These simple flat round cakes of deliciousness have been eaten since pre-historic times.
The trend has continued into the present day when the number of variations of the recipe and serving suggestions make pancakes one of the most versatile dishes in the world.
I had a fantastic coffee date with a friend of mine and created a batch of Pikelets to munch on as we chatted away.
Pikelets are a form of crumpets, which originated in the West Midlands in the United Kingdom. Traditionally crumpets were made on a hot griddle and only the bottom was cooked. Pikelets are different as they were generally smaller and were cooked on both sides.
- Sift the flour, salt, mixed spice and sugar into a bowl.
- In a separate bowl or mug, whisk the egg and milk together.
- Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture.
- Whisk until the ingredients are combined and the mixture is thick.
- Heat a pan over a medium heat.
- Add some butter to coat the pan (around 1 – 2 tsp)
- Then spoon tablespoon size parts of the mixture into the pan.
- Let cook until you see a number of air bubbles appear.
- Then flip the pikelets over.
- Cook through your batch of mixture.
- Then serve with freshly chopped fruit, jam and plain natural yoghurt.
