Many many years ago when our family consisted of only two adults and two children, we would wake up on a Sunday morning and treat ourselves to a nice big breakfast of Bacon and Eggs and sit sipping an endless pot of tea on the back deck . . .
Our Sunday mornings soon got a little more hectic with the addition of a third, fourth and fifth child and for a while there, there was no such thing as Sunday morning breakfast, come to think of it there still isn't !!
BUT, we have started a new tradition. To avoid the rush first thing in the morning we have started 'Doing Tea' on the Weekends, Morning Tea or Afternoon Tea, it doesn't matter, no pressure . . . as long as it done together, with a pot of Tea for mum and dad,
a pot of Milo for the kids
and a batch of freshly baked Pikelets, Scones or Cake of the Day!
I keep this recipe stapled inside my kitchen cupboard
4 tabsp sugar
2 cups milk
3 cups sr flour
sprinkle of salt
2 tabsp melted butter
Place eggs, sugar and milk onto a bowl and whisk well together
Beat in flour and salt then add melted butter and mix to make a nice smooth batter.
Drop dessertspoonfuls onto a hot buttered fry pan. Turn over once bubbles start to appear on the top and cook on the other side.
Serve with a lather of butter, sprinkle of sugar and squeeze of fresh lemon juice
This batch makes up about 25 - 30 pikelets.
ENJOY !! We do . . .
