Mini pancakes

The kids and I also did a little cooking yesterday and we made mini pancakes - or pikelets if you like.  Mmmm - of our favourites.  Normally they get eaten the minute the leave the frying pan - but for some reason I managed to finish cooking them all before anyone ate one - amazing!  So I just had to take a photo to prove it! 

Don't the kids look like they just want to gobble them all up!  Well - guess what - they did!  With a little butter and jam - or maple syrup - they were gone in a flash. 
This is the recipe I use for the mini pancakes - and it has been used over and over again - so I can definitely recommend it!
Mini Pancakes (Pikelets)
1 cup Self-Raising Flour
2 Tablespoons castor sugar
3/4  - 1 cup Milk
1 egg lightly beaten
30 g Butter  - melted

Sift flour and add sugar, egg, milk and butter and mix with a fork to form a smooth batter.  Add a little more milk if mixture is too thick. 
Place tablespoon fulls into the frying pan and cook over medium heat for approx 1 min until underside is golden brown, flip over and cook other side.
Serve spread with a little butter and jam or maple syrup if you like and enjoy!

Happy cooking!
