MRS KING'S FEEL GOOD RECIPES -  PIKELETS
Easily, my most cooked recipe! PIKELETS!

The first recipe my Mum and big sister ever cooked with me! Who remembers cooking these as a kid and waiting (for what felt like years) for the bubbles to appear on the pikelets before you could flip them!? Well lucky for us, we’re in some form of ‘lockdown’ and some of us have a bit of spare time on our hands. These are the perfect little treats to cook with your 4-5+ year olds! So whip up a few of these, pop on the kettle and lather on the jam!


Polly being the perfect pikelet model...she may or may not have devoured a couple after the shoot! 

My Pikelets

Ingredients:
20g butter (melted) + extra to cook with
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon of bicarb soda
A pinch of salt
150mL buttermilk*
1 egg (beaten)


Method:

1. Whisk butter, buttermilk and the egg together in a large bowl.
2. Add flour (sift it if you can), bicarb soda and salt. Whisk well. If you have time, pop the mixture in the fridge to chill for an hour (this will keep the pikelets fluffy!).
3. Pop a little butter in a frying pan on medium heat, wait a minute and then add dollops of the mixture. Turn when bubbles appear and cook on the second side for a minute or two.
4. Add your fave condiment (jam, honey, nutella, butter etc etc!) and gobble up! 

*I don't ever buy buttermilk but you can easily make your own - just add a splash of white vinegar to your milk! 


NOTE: I don't add any sugar to mine...they are sweet enough once you add jam on top (and kids don't need to be any crazier in lockdown)! And, I usually double the mixture, cook half and save some to cook fresh the next morning for breaky! 

Send this recipe on to a friend, or bake a batch and drop them at their door.

Stay safe and well beautiful #trovegirls!
