Growing up in New Zealand, Pikelets, similar to a cute little pancake, were a very common breakfast and snack food. I was excited to share these adorable childhood treats with my own kids.
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup self-raising flour
1 tablespoon butter, melted
extra butter, to grease
In a medium bowl, beat egg and sugar together. In a jug, combine the milk and baking soda. Whisk flour gradually into egg mixture, alternately with milk mixture, until well combined. Stir in butter.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium. Brush pan lightly with extra butter. Drop heaped tablespoons of mixture in batches into pan, allowing room for spreading.
Cook 1 to 2 minutes until bubbles appear and the underside is golden. Turn and cook for 1 minute until cooked through. Repeat with remaining mixture. Serve pikelets warm or cold, with topping of choice (butter, jam, whipped cream etc).
