Pikelets
  • 1
    Sift dry ingredients into a medium bowl. Make a well in the centre, gradually whisk in egg and enough of the milk to make a smooth batter.
  • 2
    Place 1 teaspoon of the butter in a large frying pan, swirl around pan until greased all over. Drop rounded tablespoons of batter into pan (you can cook four at a time), allow room for spreading. When bubbles begin to appear, turn pikelets, cook until browned lightly on the other side. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.
