- ¾ cup self-raising flour
- ¼ cup wholemeal flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 teaspoons rice bran oil or cooking oil spray
1 Sift flours and baking soda into a medium mixing bowl. Add buttermilk to mixture with egg and stir until batter forms.
2 Brush or spray a medium heavy-based, non-stick frying pan with oil and set over medium heat. Drop tablespoons of batter into pan 2-3cm apart and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until small bubbles appear on pikelets’ surface. Flip pikelets and cook for 1 more minute, or until lightly golden.
3 Repeat cooking process with remaining batter, transferring cooked pikelets to a plate (keep them warm in a low-temperature oven).
Give this basic pikelet recipe a delicious fruity makeover!
If you can’t find buttermilk, use plain yoghurt.
