2 cups plain flour
4 teaspns baking powder
1 egg
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon butter


1. Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour. Drop egg into the middle of the bowl and stir adding milk all the while. Stir from the centre well out to the edge of the bowl.

2. Beat the batter until just combined.  To make sure consistency is right, use your spoon to make a figure-8 in the mixture.  The figure should stay for a second or two and then disappear.  If the consistency is too thick (figure-8 is a permanent fixture) add a little more milk.

3.  Allow mix to stand for 15 minutes.

4. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat, melt ½ teaspoon butter until sizzling and drop heaped tablespoonfuls of mixture into the pan.

5. When bubbles appear on one side of the pikelet turn over and cook the other side until both sides are light golden brown.

Serve with butter and jam.

Makes about 14
