We’ve come across pikelets on the web and so we decided to make them ourself! These pancake-alike pikelets are sweet, sturdy and delicious. We had some blueberry jam from our garden so we’ve added that on top of them for extra flavor! You can add whatever you think would be tasty, like banana or chocolate.
Making the batter — 10 minutes
Sift flour into a medium-sized bowl and stir in the sugar. By sifting flour you prevent lumps appearing in the batter. Add in the egg and whisk together. Pour in the milk and keep mixing until the batter reaches the consistency that you prefer. You can make a thicker batter for thicker pikelets by adding a little bit more self-rising flour, or less milk. Whisk the mixture until the batter is smooth.
Cooking the pikelets — 10 minutes
Put a medium-sized skillet on medium fire. Add in the butter and let melt. Drop in by large spoonfuls of batter onto the hot skillet. Pikelets are usually around 2 inches across, but bigger is also fine. Flip the pikelets when bubbles appear on the surface. Cook until brown on both sides, will take up to 4 or 5 minutes tops for 2 pikelets at once.
