Does anyone really like those tiny little yucky pikelets you get from the super-market?
So Heres a recipe from one of my Fav. food websites (www.foodinaminute.co.nz) to make tasty pikelets great for breakfast or a snack, Piklets are great cos you can put pretty much anything on them.
These pikelets have fruit in them, you can have it without also.


* 50 g butter
* 410g can Peaches in Clear Fruit Juice
* 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
* 1 cup milk
* 1 egg
* grated rind one orange or lemon
* 2 cups wholemeal flour
* 3 tsps baking powder
* 1/4 cup castor sugar


1. Melt the butter in a frying pan and cook until it becomes nut brown. Set aside.
Strain the Peaches , reserving the juice. Dice the fruit and mix in a bowl with the juice, yoghurt, milk, egg and orange rind.
3. Put the flour, baking powder and sugar into a bowl and fold in the fruit mixture and nut brown butter.
4.Heat a knob of butter in a frying pan and place 3-4 large spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan. Allow the pikelets to cook until bubbles rise to the surface. Turn over and cook a further 2 minutes. Transfer to a cake rack to cool while cooking with the remaining mixture. Serve hot or cold.

NomNom Eat them up before I do.
