Australia - Pikelet

Updated: Jun 15, 2021

Pancakes, but better. Think fluffy.


Aneri's note: So Aussies really love their meat down under! It took me a bit of searching, but landed on a popular vegetarian breakfast item. I don’t do desserts in this blog - that’s too easy! Desserts are almost always vegetarian (gelatin is the culprit if they aren’t!). This page focuses on sides or meals. I know a few Aussies and they are lovely entertaining people with a wicked sense of humor! I have yet to visit this exciting country/continent in one, but it's definitely on my wish list.

 

Pikelet

Difficulty level (1-10): 3


These are pancakes/hotcakes! But Aussies have a spin on this, where they prefer to use self-rising flour instead of all purpose for a nice fluffy cake. It actually makes a huge difference and is super yummy in the morning! Also maple syrup is a topping preference of North America - in Australia they use honey! Try their fancy Manuka honey if you want to get really authentic.



Ingredients:

Milk - 3/4 cup

Egg - 1

Self-rising flour* - 1 cup

*you can make self-rising flour if you can't find it! (Combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon fine salt)

Sugar - 1 TB

Butter - to taste

Honey - to taste

Salt - pinch


Recipe:

1. Whisk milk and egg together.

2. Sift flour and sugar together into the bowl with a pinch of salt and whisk until smooth

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium and put butter to your liking.

4. Flip and cook other side for 1 minute

5. Serve with butter and honey!
