Pikelet is the best treat for afternoon tea. It is very easy to prepare too! It usually serves with strawberry jam and whipped cream. I did not have whipped cream so I had it with strawberry jam and it taste delicious still. = )

Pikelets ready to serve!


150g self-raising flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
36g caster sugar
166ml milk
1 egg
20g butter, melted
Extra butter to grease pan

What to do

(1) Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and sugar together into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.

(2) Using a whisk or fork, beat milk and egg in a small bowl until combined. Pour milk and egg mixture into the well. Gradually incorporate the flour into the milk mixture, whisking until a smooth batter forms. Mix in melted butter.

(3) Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly grease pan with butter.

(4) Drop tablespoons of the mixture into the frypan. Dropping the mixture from the tip of the tablespoon will give a round shape to the pikelets. Don't overfill the frypan as this will make turning the pikelets difficult. Cook until several bubbles appear on the surface (this should take about one minute).

(5) Turn pikelets over using an egg slice and cook until golden brown. Remove cooked pikelets from pan and repeat with remaining batter, lightly greasing pan between each batch. Serve.
