Recipe: Pikelets

Home cooked pikelets are such an easy way to amp up a weekend breakfast, and they can be made with ingredients that are usually found in the pantry. As children we used to make them allllllllllll the time, and we had even reached the point where we would be adding chocolate chips and/or food colouring to make them more exciting. Another fun idea is to pour the mixture into cookie cutters, so that you can make perfectly cool shapes when you serve them. As I have grown up, I have tended away from eating pikelets every single weekend, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy them any less. Now though, my tastes have advanced (or at least, I like to think they have) – and instead of adding food colouring, I’d much rather eat them alongside some delicious lemon curd, or fruit, bacon and maple syrup. Check out the recipe below:


  • 1 c flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 3/4 c milk
  • Optional (any or all): 1/2 t cinnamon, mashed banana, 1 t vanilla, 1/2 c chocolate chips


  1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, beat the egg and sugar with a whisk until pale and thick.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk and mix until just combined.
  4. Cook. Flip when the bubbles appear.
  5. Serve with your favourite condiments!
