Pikelets are a type of small pancake popular in Australia and New Zealand. They are only about 3 inches wide. The outside is crisp and golden from frying in butter, while the inside is spongy. With the addition of lemon zest, these Lemon Pikelets are a light and refreshing addition to your breakfast or tea time. They are easy to make and the perfect size for young children.
If your skillet is large enough to cook more than one at a time, just make sure to not overcrowd. The pikelets spread a little as they cook. When you flip them, be sure to not press down. This can cause them to become dense.
Don’t have self-rising flour? No worries, it is easy to make your own at home. For 1 cup of all purpose flour, stir in 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
