Blueberry Pikelets

It's been a while since the camera has come out to play so I thought it's time for a recipe.
Now there are a few recipes I have in mind to try, but today I thought I'd make the kids some pikelets...very, very simple to make and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry & fridge.

It is also kid friendly, the mixing part, and any excuse really to try out our gorgeous gift, from a beautifully thoughtful lady!
Thank you Ms Curlypops x (by the way..she has been wearing her hat most of the time since Saturday)

Blueberry Pikelets

ingredients
  • 2 cups (300g) self raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup (110 g) caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 30g melted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup (160g) frozen blueberries **method
  • place flour, sugar, eggs, buttermilk*, butter, vanilla in a bowl and stir to combine. Let your mixture stand for about 10 minutes
  • heat a non-stick fry pan with some spray oil, on low heat and spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture and cook for about 3 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface then flip and cook for another 3 minutes
  • serve with extra blueberries, butter, whipped cream, maple syrup...whatever you feel like
* reminder on how to make buttermilk
** if you don't have blueberries, just leave them out or add something else
and make sure you have fun making them!

Megan said...

mm yum! i often make these for a weekend breakfast/brunch treat - they are super good with some grated apple stirred through the mixture as well, makes them extra moist and yummy!

Hi Cathie,
I fancied making pikelets today to warm us up, so had to check your blog first for a recipe. And it did not disappoint. Yummy, so easy to make, and everything needed was in the house (because you were so thoughtful and let us know how to make buttermilk)
This recipe is going straight to my “red book” where all our favourite/special/often used recipes, go.
Thank you! Cat
