Tamaki Intermediate Year 7 - Pikelets

Coming back to finish the last cycle for this year in Food Technology was something we have been waiting for. Finally we are now back in the cooking class. Our focus this term is Kiwiana foods. This week we made pikelets. Pikelets are very easy to cook. They cook very fast because they don't have to be cooked in an oven. Below is the list of ingredients needed to make pikelets and the steps to follow when making them.

1 household tbsp golden syrup
25g butter
1tbsp sugar
1/2c milk
1 egg
1c self rasing flour
enough butter to rub

Dip an ordinary tablespoon in hot water and measure the golden syrup with it.
Put in the bowl with butter and warm to soften both.
Mix in sugar, milk and egg.
Add flour then mix with a beater until just smooth.
Heat frying pan and rub surface of the hot frying pan with a little butter on a paper towel.
Drop tablespoonful lots of the mixture to make round pikelets.
When bubbles burst on top of the pikelets, turn over.
When the centre of each pikelet springs back when touched with your finger it is
Serve with whipped cream and plum jam. Enjoy!!
Ours tasted really nice!
