Pikelets are one of those awesomely easy recipes that can be whipped up in a matter of minutes, cooked and eaten straight away, no fuss.
I make the batter before I pick up the kids from school, let it sit while I go get them (letting the batter sit is not necessary though) and then while they are unpacking their school bag and getting change I spoon the mixture into the fry pan.
For our family one batch is enough for afternoon tea, but sometimes I make a double batch to have enough for afternoon tea and snack for lunch boxes the next day. Find lunchbox ideas here.
Hope you enjoy my easy pikelet recipe!
