Do you have a recipe in your artillery that just never, ever fails?
Here is my Old Faithful.


My Little Ladybird LOVES these pikelets, as do I- when she is kind enough to share with me.
Depending on what is in the fridge, we create all sorts of weird and wonderful combinations.

1 cup self-raising flour (we often use wholemeal)
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
butter/ oil for pan-frying

Sift flour into large bowl.
Make a well in the centre.
In a separate jug/bowl, whisk milk and egg together.
Gradually add to well, whisking until smooth.
At this stage I add in my weird and wonderful combinations.*
Heat fry pan and melt butter or coconut oil or whatever you are choosing to fry in!
Drop heaped tablespoons of mixture into pan.
Cook 2-3 minutes before flipping and cooking 2-3 minutes on other side.


*Weird and wonderful combinations to add into pikelet mixture

  • A few spoons of ricotta, grated zucchini and corn kernels with a sprinkle of turmeric
  • A few spoons of tinned tuna and crumbled fetta
  • Some pumpkin puree with ricotta
  • Blueberries with a sprinkle of cinnamon
