 It's nearly time;To give up meat, fish, fats, eggs and milky foods. Joking. Most people I know, try to give up chocolate. I don't, because it never works, but this year I will try. 

These are New Zealand's answer to a pancake. Thicker than the traditional, but thinner and much smaller than the American pancake. Served simply with butter or a dollop of cream and jam. Please no syrup, or lemon juice and sugar: We kiwis like to keep it simple.
Pikelets are meant to be a lot smaller than these,and often served as afternoon tea.A teaspoon of mixture is ideal, but is a faff so i just used a tablespoon. I made about 8 large ones, so you could easily make about 25 normal sized ones. This recipe uses a tablespoon of sugar, but i altered the sugar because i like them not as sweet.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter, and extra
  • butter or jam and cream to serve

1.Sift flour and sugar together into a bowl.
2.Whisk milk and egg together, then add to dry ingredients, whisking until smooth.
3.Heat a non-stick frypan over medium heat and add a little melted butter. Drop level teaspoon of the mixture into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface.
4.turn over and cook until golden
