Pikelets with jam and cream


Classic pikelets that take just minutes to prepare are irresistible when topped with jam and cream.



  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 30 g melted, for brushing butter
  • jam, whipped cream, to serve



  1. Sift flour and soda together into a medium bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in centre. Gradually stir in egg and enough milk for a smooth, pouring consistency. Rest batter for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Brush with butter. Working in 3 batches of 6, drop tablespoons of batter into pan, allowing room for spreading. Cook 1-2 minutes, until bubbles appear on surface. Turn and cook 1 minute further, until golden. Brush pan with butter between batches.
  3. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.
