Pikelets, never heard of them? They’re just small pancakes I suppose. My grandson loves them cause he can have a stack instead of one big one.
I came up with this new recipe for pikelets because often when my grandson has a sleepover, he asks for pancakes. Because I’m trying to be a good nana, I’ve added a little more nourishment to the recipe. You know I love food, I’m a chef right! Just because I’m a chef, it doesn’t mean that all the jobs I do in the kitchen take time and loads of technique. In fact, mostly I like to make quick, amazingly tasty food. After all, if they eat it and they love it, I’ve done my job. For a breakfast that takes a little longer to prepare you could try these crumpets
Learning new techniques help when your learning to cook, they’re the building blocks of being confident in the kitchen and going on to doing your own thing. So these pikelets are a basic recipe technique with adjustments made for the additions. I’ve added oats and sultanas and increased the liquid a little because of them. You can also make a batch and freeze them in portions. Great for kids snacks or quick breakfast on the run.
- 250 g milk
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 200 g self - raising flour
- 20 g rolled oats
- 25 g sultanas
- 30 g raw sugar
- Weigh the milk, egg and vanilla in the Thermomix bowl set to speed 4 for 4 sec.
- Add the remainder of ingredients and set on reverse speed + 4 for 4 sec.
- Pour pikelets straight out of the Thermomix into a heated buttered fry pan.
- If you make them really tiny, you can eat lots hehe hee.
A Nana’s afternoon tea with added goodness and no added additives. The kids will love these plain ones too, just remove the additions and use a little less milk.
