Cooking with Keiko: Pikelets!

keiko-blogWe're going to make pikelets today! They are mini pancakes.

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!


YUMMM – Hope you like them!


They're a bit far


Pull it closer


Mmm, they smell good!


Hurry, let's eat!


(Pricilla didn't eat any…)


(Kenji didn't eat any…)


They taste especially good when I make them myself! purrr


Did you liike? purrrrr


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!


Purrs, Keiko
