Pikelets Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 8

10 ml/2 tsp fresh yeast or 5 ml/1 tsp dried yeast
5 ml/1 tsp caster (superfine) sugar

300 ml milk
1 egg
225 g/8 oz/2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
5 ml/1 tsp salt
Oil for greasing

Method:

Mix the yeast and sugar with a little of the milk to a paste, then blend in the remaining milk and the egg. Stir the liquid into the flour and salt and mix to a thin batter. Cover and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes until doubled in size. Heat a griddle or heavy frying pan (skillet) and grease it lightly. Pour cupfuls of the mixture on to the griddle and cook for about 3 minutes until the underside is browned, then turn and cook for about 2 minutes on the other side. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
