Pikelets Recipe

written by: bel

Piklets are so easy once you've got the right recipe!  

Here is my normal pikelet recipe. they're light and fluffy and can be made the night before you need them just leave them in air tight container on bench not in fridge.

1 cup milk
2/3 cup castor sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup SR flour
1/2 teaspoon Bicarb
1 tablespoon butter melted

Whisk up the milk, sugar and vanilla till its a little frothy.
Add in flour and bicarb then the egg.
Lastly the butter and whisk it all up.

The batter will be quite thick but that's ok that's what makes them fluffy :)

You can double it or triple it no worries and you can keep the batter for a day in the fridge just give it a good whisk before using.

Milo Magic Pikelets

Firstly can you keep this one to yourself because this is the one i take to play dates and things and if everyone knows it then i'll have to find something else, ta.
Make as above but add 2 tablespoons of Milo :)
when you cook them keep and eye out because its harder to tell if they are cooked and you don't want to burn them.

too easy !


  1. Yum will have to give these a go!!

  2. Yumo! Apart from apples, picklets were the only other thing I craved during pregnancy - wish I could make them as well as this though lol

  3. I made picklets last week - but I added the browning bananas from the fruit bowl to mine - yum.

  4. Oh, delish! I saw someone post a photo of these on IG! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Will definitely be giving them a whir :)
