Yummy Pikelets. I’ve never heard of them before until recently. They are like Scottish pancakes or flat crumpets. Delicious with some strawberry jam and cream.
1½ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 - 1 1⁄4 cup milk
1 tbsp melted butter
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk until combined
Add the wet ingredients to a different bowl and mix until combined
Add the wet to the dry and whisk until you get a smooth, thick-ish batter (needs to slide off a spoon)
Heat a lightly buttered non-stick pan on a medium heat
Drop a tablespoon of the mixture into the pan (allowing room to turn the pikelets)
When the pikelets bubble, turn and cook the other side
Remove from pan and keep warm in a clean tea towel
Apple Pie Roll Ups (with caramel sauce on the side). Fast and easy to make. So yummy, especially on a rainy autumn day.
For 4 apple pie roll ups I used:
4 slices of bread
1/2 apple (medium size)
About 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 175 C (350 F).
Flatten slices of bread with rolling pin,
Melt the butter and combine sugar and cinnamon to make the cinnamon sugar.
Peel the apple and cut into small pieces, sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon sugar.
Divide the apple between the slices of bread.
Roll it up tightly, roll through the butter and then cinnamon sugar.
Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.
Serve warm and with whatever you like
Banana & Nutella
French Toast Roll Ups with Cinnamon Sugar. Super easy and fast to make. So yummy!
Few (stale) slices of bread (1 slice = 1 roll)
A bit of milk
Remove crusts from each slice of bread and flatten bread slices using a rolling pin
In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg and milk.
Spread the Nutella evenly on each slice of bread, as much or as little as you want
Slice the banana and put 3 slices of banana on the Nutella on the bottom of the bread
Roll the slice of bread and soak the roll in the egg until it's completely covered in egg.
Melt some butter in a frying pan and fry the rolls until golden brown on all sides.
Combine some sugar with a bit of cinnamon
Remove rolls from frying pan and roll them in some cinnamon sugar
I didn't add quantities to this recipe because most of it is to taste and a matter of how many roll ups you want to make.

banana pancakes and this is a easy recipe for yummy fluffy pancakes. This recipe will give you about 6 pancakes, I halved the original recipe because my husband doesn’t like banana pancakes. If you want more, just double the ingredients.
3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 small, over-ripe banana, peeled (the browner, the better)
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Add flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a bowl, mix well.
In a small bowl mash the banana until almost smooth.
Whisk in the egg and then add milk and vanilla extract until well blended.
Pour the banana mixture and the melted butter in the bowl with flour.
Fold the batter gently with a spatula until just blended. Don't over-mix, batter will be thick and lumpy.
Bake the pancakes, about 2 minutes on each side, in a non-stick pan with a little bit of butter until they are golden brown.
