How to make pikelets
Pikelets are super easy, quick and yummy
My son had a school project to describe a food from his home country (New Zealand).
He chose pikelets.
World famous in New Zealand, Australia and England, pikelets are like mini unsweetened pancakes and are best served with jam and cream.
Pikelets are very simple to cook and make a great snack - a good starter recipe for encouraging children to cook.
Tried pikelets? - Apparently piklets are also known in the USA as silver dollar pancakes.

This is not my son's homework project. He produced his own notes, typed them up and made a poster. This is my own work. We have shared the photos.
