Q. What is the difference between a pikelet, a hotcake and a small pancake?

A. Who the f**k cares!

Here is some more traditional food for you. These were named pikelets or drop-scones by our fair-skinned ancestors.

Enjoy them with maple syrup, agave syrup, golden syrup, treacle, berries, sliced fruit, margarine, cinnamon, brown sugar, lemon juice, jam and/or cream… go crazy. The traditional way to eat them is the cream/jam way, as part of afternoon tea, but everyone likes syrup, so feel free to dis-inhibit yourself.


1 cup soymilk
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 cup plain flour
1 tablespoon of corn flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons of sugar to taste
a pinch of salt
oil for frying


Whip up the batter. Fry ‘n’ flip tablespoon-sized portions of batter in hot oil. Serve warm drizzled with margarine and anything else you fancy.
