They're my favourite, and really easy!
This recipe will make enough for 4 humans.
You will need…
- 180g self-raising flour
- 50g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 180mL milk (+ a bit extra)
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 20g butter-melted
- Extra butter, for frying
1. Sift the flour and sugar into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg lightly, then add the milk, butter and vinegar and stir to mix.
3. Pour the liquid into the flour mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon. See how thick the batter becomes, usually we add a bit more milk to make it smooth and fairly runny!
4. Heat a frying pan and melt some butter, enough to coat the bottom. Start medium heat and then lower!
5. Make sure you have Low heat. Place 1 tablespoon of batter into the frying pan, and put as many as you can (around 4-6). Now you wait!
6. When you see bubbles on the surface of the batter (about 2-3 minutes?), flip it over.
7. Fry the other side for about 1-2 minutes, and it's ready!
8. Heat a tiny bit of butter each time, and repeat!
9. Enjoy with jam or maple syrup! We usually make this batch and leave half of it for afternoon snack!

Hope you like this recipe! The recipe is from Anthony Telford's Basics book. These were plain pikelets. We did a fresh cooking session for this blog post, because we'd made some banana ones before! All you have to do for the banana ones is just mash up a couple of bananas before adding the egg, milk, butter and vinegar, then add to the flour! Very easy!
Next time we're going to be making some kitty-specific snacks!
