These Pikelets are perfect for those times when it seems like there is nothing to eat. They are quick to make, use basic ingredients that can be found in any kitchen, and best of all can be frozen. These pikelets also make a perfect lunchbox snack, and can be eaten as they are or topped with anything! We topped ours with cream and jam, and we also love them topped with Nutella.
Pikelets are an extremely budget friendly snack, with our recipe costing only $0.90 for the entire batch (excluding butter for frying and any toppings). Makes approximately 15 pikelets.
- 2 cups self raising flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- butter, for frying
Add the flour, sugar and egg to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Slowly pour in the milk, beating well until you have a smooth, thick batter. Add a little extra milk for a thinner batter.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook heaped tablespoons full of batter, flipping when the underside is golden and the surface starts to bubble.
