On the first day my daughter went to kindy, her friend had pikelets for morning tea and I got serious lunch box envy!  Is it ok to want what a four year old is having???  I think I must have had a bit of a deprived childhood as I don’t EVER remember having pikelets cooked for me or my brothers, so when I saw pikelets in the other lunch box I had to make sure my daughter was not as deprived as I was.  So that afternoon we made pikelets together!  My beautiful boy was pretty happy with them too!

Pikelets

Ingredients

20g butter
140g SR flour
Pinch salt
40g sugar
¼ teaspoon bi-carbonate of soda
1 ½ MC sour milk (if fresh, add 1 teaspoon vinegar)
1 egg

Method

Place butter in thermomix bowl and melt for 40 seconds at 50°C on speed 4

Add remaining ingredients and mix for 30 seconds on speed 5

Heat a non stick pan on medium heat and either grease with a little dob of butter or a spray of canola oil.  Place spoonfuls of pikelet mixture onto pan, and when bubbles appear turn over and cook the other side.

You can serve these with jam and butter, but we had them plain.
