Fluffy pikelets, yummm, as I stuff my mouth!!
The buttermilk in these pikelets make them so much fluffier and lighter than normal.
But once again, you need to be careful as they can be stodgy!!
Who doesn’t remember pikelets dripping with butter as you were too impatient to wait till they cooled??
Or am I just a big greedyguts?
What will you need?
1/2 cup of sugar
2 cups of pure flour
1 cup of buttermilk
1 cup of milk
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 punnet of Puhoi yoghurt
Olivani spread or butter
3 tsp baking powder
big pinch of salt..
Turn on the frypan (I use big electric one) to 4-5 on heating or medium.
Whisk egg and sugar until creamy… Add in zest.
Add all dry ingredients together and combine well.
Add in one cup of flour and all buttermilk.
I like to whisk this is to make it smooth… Beating/ mixing is fine too.
Add in remaining flour etc with 1 cup of milk and more if need be to make smooth batter.
Add 1 tbsp of olivani to pan and coat pan with spread.
Spoon in batter when hot, I use a ladle and one ladle does 3-4 pikelets..
Usually 3-4 mins per side but when the batter is all bubbly and risen you know its time to flip it…
Continue until all the batter is used and add more Olivani to coat pan as needed.
PLACE ON PLATE TO COOL…wait!!!
Even though these are delicious to eat with melty butter…
WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!!!
When cool, add a lick of olivani and then get a BIG dallop of the fruity puhoi yoghurt which will take the place of jam and cream!!
Tastes better too and the pikelets are lighter with the buttermilk in them and it just has a different taste…
Even though, the pikelets have sugar in them you can still add chutney, salami and cheese too…
You know what to do now!! ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY….
I have put the recipe on here, so go check it out…
Before your own greedyboys come along and POOF….All gone:)
Speaking of greedy, i got so carried away , I forgot to snap them with the Puhoi yoghurt on them!!
But you can imagine how good they look!! and taste…
