Golden syrup pikelets

Pikelets, as we know them, are a uniquely Australian and New Zealand phenomenon. In some parts of the world, asking for a pikelet will result in either a crumpet or an oatcake rather than fluffy little pancakes.

1.Whisk the milk, egg and golden syrup in a medium jug or bowl until combined.
2.Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the milk mixture until smooth.
3.Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat until hot.
4.Grease the pan with a little butter or cooking oil, then drop 2 tablespoons of batter per pikelet into the pan, allowing room for spreading. When bubbles begin to appear, turn to cook until browned on other side. Transfer pikelets to a large plate and cover with a clean tea towel to keep warm.
5.Serve pikelets warm with butter and jam, if desired.
