Gluten Free Pikelets
- 1 egg
- 1 heaped teaspoon of sugar (white sugar not pretend rubbish or that povo brown stuff).
- 1 cup thereabouts of Self Raising Gluten Free Flour
- about 1/2 cup of milk
What you gotta do!
Break your egg into a mixing bowl, dump your sugar on top and immediately beat them together. (If you leave the sugar sitting on the egg for a moment the sugar burns the egg and makes your pikelets taste weird and you don't need some ungrateful person whinging).
Then pour in your milk, and beat that together. Next dump in your flour and mix it altogether thoroughly, really beat the heck out of it, if you have a couple of lumpy bits it's not really an issue but you don't want clumps of unmixed flour.
Now you don't want your mixture too thick because you're more likely to get a mushy, middle in your pikelet. So add some more milk a little at a time likewise if it's too runny add more flour a little at a time.
If you end up making too much don't invite your neighbours kids around or they'll expect it all the time.
It's always, always best to use a nonstick frypan and the first pikelet is usually a throw-away so don't waste too much batter on the first one. The first pikelet is your test run, getting the pan hot enough, but not too hot. On my stove top it's mid way between low heat and middle heat.
Flip over your pikelet when you get a good spread of bubbles starting to form, if you prematurely flip it ,don't stress just flip it a couple more times to get that nice brown look, insipid pikelets don't look as appetizing and everything looks better with a tan ;)

Gluten Free pikelets, in my opinion, are best served warm. You can put jam, maple syrup, bananas and honey, bananas and maple syrup whatever within reason and don't tell a kid he can have "anything" he wants on it because he'll probably ask for vegemite and that's just wrong on a pikelet. If your pikelets don't work out please feel free to keep it to yourself and not comment and if they're fabulous please share it to everyone you know. Thank-you!
