So we've hit the fussy toddler stage. Well, I guess Henry isn't as fussy as he could be, he's probably more bored than anything of what I keep serving up to him. Today I looked around for a basic pikelet recipe that I could sneak veggies into and first go was a winner winner chicken dinner!
Thanks to Exclusively food for the basic recipe (I omitted the 2Tbsp sugar for savoury pikelets):
150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
36g (2 tablespoons) caster sugar
166ml (2/3 cup) milk
1 large egg
20g (1 tablespoon) butter, melted
Extra butter to grease pan
-Makes about 20 pikelets
Whisk up the milk and egg in a bowl and add to the dry ingredients, then whisk until nice and smooth. Add the melted butter and stir until combined.
Now add whatever bits you'd like - I added 1 Cup pureed sweet potato and 1/2 Cup grated cheese. Heat up your non-stick pan, add some grease (butter will do) and put tablespoonfuls into the pan. If they're not spreading very well, ie the mix is too thick, just add a bit more milk until it's the right consistency.
