These traditional pikelets, which are rather like pancakes, are extremely easy to make and far more reliable than normal pancakes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • buttermilk to mix (about 2 large cartons)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • a pinch of bicarbonate of soda
  • a little salt
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)

Method

  1. Mix the flour and the salt.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the dry mixture and pour in enough buttermilk to form a batter.
  3. Add the bicarbonate of soda dissolved in a little water.
  4. Beat the batter well.
  5. Fry gently on both sides and serve hot with butter and jam/jelly.
