I remember pikelets as being a little bit magical, mini pancakes, that were portable in school lunches for morning tea and could be served with butter, jam or anything you wanted really. Yes I'll have 3 please!
I also recall coming home from school on occasion to the fragrance of pikelets cooking. It brings back fond memories of my mum. She loved to make a little treat for our hungry after school snackery!
These are a little more sophisticated than those olden day treats, damn social media. We had to up our ante and stack them with berries and coulis and goodness knows what else. In essence though, the same fluffy favoured treat for the kids. But Instagram friendly, heaven help us all. Heat the frying pan, you know you want one!
