Pikelets

Makes 6

Pikelets are a traditional teatime treat which comes from the same family as the crumpet. It is a yeasted pancake the size of a drop scone or scotch pancake. Store cooked pikelets until ready to serve. The classic way to serve a pikelet is toasted with a knob of butter.

Made these with wholemeal spelt flour. My boys had them for breakfast with chocolate spread - they disappeared very quickly!
