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 mini pancakes that can be eaten with your hands, and are often served with jam and cream on top.

What are pikelets

Not sure what pikelets are? Pikelets are like a mini version of pancakes, that are served as a breakfast or snack here in Australia.

Pikelets are typically topped with jam and cream, and are eaten with your fingers, as opposed to pancaked which are eaten with a knife and fork.

Supermarkets in Australia do sell ready to eat pikelets, but they are so simple to make there is really no reason to buy the pre-made version. Plus, it is so much cheaper to make them yourself.
