Maple Syrup Pikelets

How does this sound ... maple syrup pikelets with a smidge of butter, lashings of jam and big dollop of cream. Honestly what else could be a better afternoon treat be? Light, spongy and delightfully maple. 

And its kiddy friendly (minus the cream), so have a tea party with your little one. They will love it.


1 egg

30g caster sugar

1 cup plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt 165ml milk

15gm butter, melted

30gm maple syrup

Put frying pan on medium element to heat up.

Whisk egg and sugar together till fluffy and pale. Add flour, baking powder, salt, milk, butter and maple syrup. Quickly mix until light and spongy. Lightly grease pan with butter Using a tablespoon, pour batter into pan. Try to give each pikelet enough room to spread, otherwise they will fuse together. Roughly 4 at a time. When bubbles begin to burst on the top of each pikelet, flip them over and cook until lightly browned. Place cooked pikelets between a folded tea towel on a plate. This will keep them warm while you cook the rest of the batter. Serve with a smidge of butter, slather on your favourite jam and a good whack of whipped or thickened cream. Alternatively you can saturate in maple syrup and serve with crispy bacon (I use Hellers Manuka Smoked Streaky Bacon). Enjoy.

 I ADORE the thickened cream from Anchor. Get some. It is seriously good.
