These fluffy pancakes are great for a weekend breakfast. Sprinkle with sugar and lemon, or serve with maple syrup, jam, stewed cinnamon apple, or for a real treat, hazelnut spread. The kids love flipping them too.
FLUFFY PANCAKES / PIKELETS
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
- 2 cups of self raising flour
- 2 tablespoons of caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ cups of milk
- 30g of butter, melted
- extra butter for cooking
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and sugar.
- Mix the egg, milk and melted butter together in a small jug.
- Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture, and pour the milk mixture into it.
- Using a whisk, slowly combine the ingredients to form a batter.
- Leave mixture to stand for 5 minutes.
- Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium to high heat, and add a knob of butter to coat the base of the pan.
- Use a measuring cup or similar, pour mixture into the pan to the size of pancakes you prefer.
- Cook for 1–2 minutes, until the bubbles start to pop on the top of the pikelets.
- Flip the pancakes and cook for a further minute on the other side.
- Remove from the pan and set aside. Add additional butter to the pan if desired and repeat until all mixture is used up.
- Serve with your favourite topping.
The trick to avoid lumps is to slowly combine the mixture in step 4. If mixture is a little thick, add some extra milk before cooking. Don’t overbeat the mix otherwise the pancakes will be tough.
