Part of what makes this recipe so quick and easy is that you only need 4 basic ingredients, self raising flour, milk, an egg and a can of crushed pineapple. There is no added sugar in these pikelets, only the naturally occurring sugar in the pineapple. They really don’t need any added sugar either, the sweetness from the pineapple is more than enough.
To make these pikelets, first drain the juice from the pineapple. Add the drained pineapple to a large mixing bowl along with 1 cup of self raising flour, 1 cup of milk and an egg. Mix the ingredients together until well combined.
Heat a frying pan over low heat and spray in a little oil (I used coconut oil) or add a small amount of butter. Fry large spoonfuls of pikelet mixture until golden, then flip and fry other side until also golden. Serve while warm, once cooled or freeze for another day, they are great however you prefer them.
