Hmmmmm ... Pikelets

I like pikelets. I also make pikelets. I'm told they are also known as 'drop scones' in other parts of the world.

They are a favourite Sunday lunch.

The preferred and reliable recipe is from the iconic Edmonds Cookbook although, strangely enough, they don't have the recipe on their website. Probably because they now sell a pre-prepared mix for pikelets.

The Recipe

1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon Edmonds Baking Powder
1 oz Butter (suit yourself)

Beat the egg and sugar until thick and add with the milk to the sifted flour, salt and baking powder.

Lastly add melted butter.

Mix until smooth and cook in spoonfuls on a hot greased gridle. (A frypan is OK, provided the heat is kept low.)
