I do my very best to encourage my girls to eat healthy food as often as possible.
I usually add good/healthy ingredients into treat-y food.
They are into pancakes (as they call them) at the moment.
Technically these pancakes are pikelets.
Preparation time: 10 mins
Total cooking time:15 mins
Makes: approx 16 pikelets
1 cup self-raising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1/2 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
1/2 - 3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
30grams butter, melted
extra melted butter
1. Sift flour, sugar, and bicarb into a medium-sized bowl. Add juice/vinegar to the milk to sour it; allow to stand for 5 minutes.
2. Make a well in the centre of dry ingredients, add egg, 1/2 cup milk and the melted butter. Mix to form a smooth batter. If the batter is too thick to pour from the spoon, add remaining milk.
** this is where I add a handful of frozen blueberries and gently stir to mix through.
3. Drop 1-2 tablespoons of mixture into the base of a greased pan, about 2cm apart. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute or until the underside is golden brown. Turn pikelets over and cook for 1 minute. Remove from pan.
4. Enjoy your pikelets on their own or serve with butter and jam.
