The other morning I thought it would be nice to pimp up breakfast for the kids. Ok - maybe for me too! Something a little more exciting than cereal, scrambled eggs or for me... a simple cup of tea.What could be a better treat than pikelets. Usually they're made with sugar but a sugar high that early in the morning? - NO thanks. So instead I went with honey and added a little bit of fruit to the mix. My kids love their fruit, so to them they seemed more "yummy"! Most of what you'll need will be in the pantry/fridge.
You will need:
3/4 cup s/raising flour
1/2 cup crushed tinned apples
2 teaspoon honey
3/4 cup butter milk
butter for cooking and of course a frypan to cook them in.
(optional to serve)
Strawberries, honey, whipped cream
What to do:
In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, apples, honey and butter milk. Mix well, either by hand or with an electric mixer, until all the ingredients are well combined. The mixture will be fairly lumpy because of the apples.
Heat your frypan to a medium setting, melt a little butter, and add a large spoon full of your mixture. Wait for the mixture to bubble on top, then flip over and cook until golden. Repeat, until all of the mixture is cooked (you may be able to cook more than one at a time depending on your pan size). The secret to enjoying lovely soft fluffy pikelets is to stop the kids eating them as they come out of the pan. To serve,drizzle with a little honey, and top with fresh strawberries and a dollop of cream. A great treat on a winter morning.
