With the weather reminding us more of winter than summer approaching, today is a bit of a pikelet day. Simple and quick to make they provide an easy and satisfying treat for all. We invented the “pikelet bar” in our house. Hungry students and their friends making brief forays home line up along the breakfast bar and consume these as fast as you could make them! Put out bowls of jam, cream or just butter and watch them disappear. You don’t need anything complicated to make them so can even make them if you are camping.
