  10499_A2Icons-Clock  Preparation time: 10 minutes

10499_A2Icons-Whisk  Cooking time: 20 minutes

10499_A2Icons-Bowl  Serves: Makes 16 pikelets



  • 1 cup (150g) of self-raising flour (wholemeal flour also works well)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 level scoops of a2 Platinum® Premium toddler milk drink
  • 150ml of water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of golden syrup
  • 1 lemon (zest only)


Sift self-raising flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk a2 Platinum® toddler milk drink powder and water until combined, then whisk in the egg, golden syrup and lemon zest.

Add the liquid mixture to the flour and combine until all lumps are smoothed out.

Heat a non-stick frypan over medium heat, with a little extra virgin olive oil to prevent pikelets sticking while cooking.

Drop a level tablespoonful of mixture for each pikelet into the frypan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface (approximately 2 minutes).

Using a spatula, carefully turn over and cook the other side of the pikelet until golden (approximately 1–2 minutes).

Transfer cooked pikelets to a plate and repeat with the remaining mixture.


Serve pikelets warm, at room temperature or cold. Pikelets can be served sweet with a sprinkle of icing sugar and a little yummy yoghurt, some stewed apple, sliced banana, blueberries or any other fruit your child likes. Pikelets also go well with a little goat or sheep cheese and sliced cherry tomatoes.
