  1. What a lovely ‘election’ free post and a beautiful depiction of simple pleasures1

      My visitors weren’t particularly interested in the election! Without a television, we seem to be missing out on the worst of the politicking.

    It all sounds blissful Caroline – pancakes are one of the very favourite breakfasts in this house so I’ll have to give these a whirl (although Nutella is Small Boys’ topping of choice!)

      There’s something about the size of the pikelets that seems to really appeal to Little Missy. I think you could definitely get away with other toppings, especially if you don’t have the Kiwis to keep you on the straight and narrow!

  3. I loooove pancakes, and these pikelets look just about the right size and thinness for my taste. They look somewhere in between the bulky, overly-gloopy American pancakes and crepes. Will defo give ’em a spin!

    Hi Caroline, I have to tell you that I was searching for an alternative to pancakes a couple of months ago and found this recipe. Pikelets have now become a firm family favourite so thank you!

      Nice and all though pancakes are, sometimes good to have something – slightly! – different. Plus, the fact that these are small makes them especially appealing to kids.
