Have these fruit pikelets ready for an after school snack or pop them in the lunchbox!

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 5-10 minutes
Serves: 18

INGREDIENTS

1 cup plain self-raising flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup honey
¾ cup (180ml) full cream milk
25g unsalted butter, melted
1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten

Banana & coconut

2 bananas, ½ cup mashed banana & remaining sliced
¼ cup shredded coconut<

Apple & cinnamon

2 apples, ½ cup grated apple & remaining sliced
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Strawberry & vanilla

10 strawberries, ½ cup diced strawberries & remaining sliced
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

METHOD

For the pikelet batter, add flour and baking powder together in a medium mixing bowl, stirring to combine.

In a large jug add honey, milk, melted butter and egg, whisking to combine. Pour over the flour mixture, stirring to combine. Add fruit combination of choice, stirring to combine.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat. Add a little extra butter to the pan until melted. Using a tablespoon as a measure, drop spoonfuls of batter into the pan, placing a slice of fruit on top and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles appear on the surface. Using a spatula, carefully turn pikelets and cook for a further 2 minutes or until golden.

Serve pikelets hot or cold with butter and honey.
