Mila’s homemade pikelets

Easy-to-make pikelets recipe for breakfastAs some of you know, we are a franco-kiwi family and while we are not spending as much time in New-Zealand as we do in France, we’ve always made a point of teaching Mila to be a freewi and to embrace both nationalities and cultures.
She was doing the Haka at the age of 3 and the same way I taught her how to make crèpes (pancakes), Steve taught her how to make pikelets which she made yesterday and again this morning and they are delicious!!

To make pikelets, you will need:

  • a large mixing bowl or a ceramic bowl
  • a flour sifter and a saucepan
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tbsp of melted butter
  1. Sift the flour (I was told it was the most boring part), baking powder and salt together into a bowl. Stir in the sugar.
  2. In another bowl or a jug, beat the egg with ¾ cup of the milk and the melted butter.
  3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the liquid mixture. Without over-mixing, stir until combined, adding more milk if the mixture is too stiff. The mixture should be able to drop off the end of a spoon.
  4. Heat a lightly buttered non-stick pan on a medium heat. Drop dessert spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, allowing room to turn the pikelets. When the pikelets bubble, turn and cook the other side.
  5. Remove from pan and keep warm in a clean tea towel.Easy-to-make pikelets recipe for breakfastEasy-to-make pikelets recipe for breakfastEasy-to-make pikelets recipe for breakfastEasy homemade pikelets your child can make for you for breakfast.

This is challenging me in so many ways and last week, I really gave myself a hard time for it but today, I thought tant pis!
    I took 137 photos for this post, kept about 60 and deleted the rest. A lot of them were out of focus or too dark but I’ve decided to use them anyway because despite the settings which I obviously need to improve, I’m loving how concentrate Mila is on the photos and I absolutely love the ones of she and Lucas looking at her expectantly.
