I’ve made these apple pikelets a couple of times now and I think they turn out rather well so I thought I would share the recipe…
* 1 3/4 cups plain flour
* 2 teaspoons bi-carb soda
* 2 tablespoons caster sugar
* 1 2/3 cups milk
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup apple (chopped finely or pureed)
* Put flour, bi-carb soda and sugar into a bowl
* Add in milk, vanilla and eggs whisk until just combined.
* Add in apple and stir to combine.
* Lightly spray a non-stick frying pan with oil.
* Heat over medium heat.
* Cook tablespoons of batter, in batches, for 1 to 2 minutes or until small bubbles appear on surface (I use egg moulds to get the round shape).
* Turn. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until cooked through.
* Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.
* Serve plain or with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
* These do freeze well, so you can make a big batch and defrost as needed (they are just as yum cold!)
* Don’t feel like apple, try banana instead – just mash with a fork (I would say 2 average sized bananas).
