Mums are always on the lookout for quick, easy recipes to fill little (and some big) bellies – here is a yummy pikelet recipe from KitchenAid.

Loved by all, the perfect lunch box filler, snack or morning tea.

 Makes: about 20 small pikelets


1 cup (150g) self raising flour
¼ cup (50g) castor sugar
1 egg
150mls milk
2 tspn white vinegar
extra butter for cooking


Place the flour, sugar, egg, milk and vinegar into a mixing bowl.

Attached the turbo beaters to the hand mixer, place beaters in mixing bowl, turn to speed 2 and mix until just combined. Increase speed to speed 7 (high) and mix 20-30 seconds or until batter is smooth.

If time allows, let batter stand for 15 minutes.

Melt a teaspoon of butter in a heavy based pan, swirling to coat the bottom. Use a ladle and place batter into pan and cook gently until bubbles appear, flip and cook until golden.

Repeat with the remaining mixture in batches.


Tip 1: Standing the batter relaxes the mixture which produces a softer pikelet.

Tip 2: Best eaten on the day of cooking.



  • Fine as a treat, but no good for my waist line.


  • Are my kids the only ones that don’t like pancakes? I’ll have to try pikelets


  • Oh wow. Yum. I also fancy the lovely red mixer!


  • Mothers day is coming-maybe I could pin this to the fridge for a subtle hint for the family.


  • Yummo – I remember having pikelets regularly when I was a kid!


  • Love this recipe I have tried many Piklet recipes but have to say this is a good one thank you


  • I had to check this recipe out for pikelets!
    I am a big fan of pikelets and pancakes … so of course i was drawn to check this out =)
    I’ve never added vinegar to my mixes though ( and I am not a fan of the pre-mix/packets – they do not taste the same … they have this taste that I don’t like and can always tell they are packet – same goes for cake mixes).
    Am interested to know what the vinegar in the mixture does for it?
    My pikelet mixture is the same (minus vinegar) and they are ever so YUMMY!!!!
    What’s funny is hubby can never get it right, even if I leave instructions for him …
    So in my household, I am the pancake/pikelet queen ♥


  • we usually buy mix’s but i will defiantly have to give this one a go :)


  • My kids like making one big pike let! Or Mickey mouse when I do a big circle and then 2 smaller ear circles and they put raisins in for eyes


  • I love pikelets but always buy packet mix…. Not anymore. Thank you, my family will love them!


  • yummy! I love whipping these up and ahving some cold ones later for a snack.


  • My kids love picklets. Can never go wrong in our household.
