Easy pikelets

John loves helping in the kitchen. 
As soon as he sees the cute apron my SIL made he gets so excited 
as he knows it’s cooking time.
 We’ve made pikelets a few times over the past week; 
they’re so quick and easy.
They are even easier when you use a sandwich press instead of a frying pan.
 This recipe comes from the Edmonds cookbook.
 What you’ll need:
1 cup plain or wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 free range egg
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
 Beat the eggs and sugar in a mixer until thick and creamy.
Add flour, baking powder, salt and milk. 
Mix together until just combined.
Drop a tablespoon onto the sandwich press. I can make 6 at once.  
When the pickets are completely bubbly close the top of the sandwich press.
Keep the lids closed until the pickles are completely cooked.
If you don’t cook them long enough they are doughy in the middle.    
 Today I cooked some of the batch in a frying pan but it is too much work keeping the temperature constant. So I gave up on the frying pan and I don’t think I’ll go back.
There are so many other things we make in the sandwich press; 
toast and sandwiches (obviously), hashbrowns, quesadillas, grilled cheese to name a few.
I love the sandwich press it makes life so much faster and easier.

      you probably know pikelets in the term of “hot cakes” as in the American term.
      I absolutely love this recipe and have cooked them several times before.
      Thanks for uploading to web, would have been completely lost for my school project otherwise!
