These are your American style pancakes, really let's face it, they are pikelets to us.
When they start to bubble and pop it is time to add the nuts and turn it over. This side does not need as long to cook through so this is the best side to add the nuts, nobody likes burnt nuts!!
Just slivered almonds for the nut part. Makes for nice crunch and adds a little something extra.
Of course fruit is served on the side and maple syrup poured over the top and ice cream is allowed. Something decadent for the weekend!!
1 cup self raising flour
1/4 caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3/4 cup milk, approximately
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
15g butter, melted
Sift all dry ingredients, make a well in the centre and add the wet ingredients, having lightly beaten the eggs, then added milk and vinegar and lastly stir in the butter.
Pour into a hot lightly oiled pan and cook as per above. If you are using an electric frypan heat it to 175 degrees or 6 1/2. Makes about 20.
