Pikelets

This is my Nan's recipe for Pikelets that I grew up with.  Sometimes I add some grated apple and a little cinnamon or some mashed banana for a change.  My kids love them as a school holiday treat or occasional after school snack.  They're really easy to make and ridiculously cheap too when you're feeding a crowd.

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

2/3 cup milk

1 tablespoon melted butter

Sift flour into a mixing bowl and add sugar. Mix together egg and milk and mix into dry ingredients. Add melted butter. Add 2 tablespoons of mixture to the heated greased pan. Cook for approximately 2 minutes on medium heat, until bubbles appear on the surface of the pikelet. Turn over pikelet and cook until other side is golden.

Serve with your favourite jam and some more butter, or chocolate spread.
