Warm Pikelets on a rainy Friday afternoon

Look out, Rose feels like cooking. And Pikelets are on the menu. Gluten Free Pikelets!

I love when Rose feels like working in the kitchen. There's nothing like passing down skills and recipes to your children. It always reminds me of cooking with my Mother and Grandmother.

Recipe is very simple, perfect for a 9 year old budding cook.

Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
Gluten Free Baking Powder
1 egg
Soy Milk
Caster Sugar
Butter for the pan

One thing my grandmother passed down was the ability to measure in "dashes", "dollops" and a "good helping of's". So for those hoping for measures, its about 2 cups of flour, 1/4 of a teaspoon of Baking Powder, 1/4 cup sugar, and enough milk to bring to a batter. Pikelets are very forgiving so don't stress over exact measures.

After seasoning the pan with a dollop of butter and a poor little sacrificial pikelet, your good to start pumping them out. Pikelets cook quickly, so they are perfect for keeping a 9 year old's attention, without becoming to involved.

Once you have cooked your pikelets both sides and set them aside to cool, your ready to top with my favourite, butter and strawberry jam. One coffee and you have the perfect snack for a rainy Friday afternoon. Bring on the weekend! Have a good weekend guys ;)
