Pikelets (Justin Gellatly)

November 14, 2015

Originally from the West Midlands, these are like a flat crumpet but a little heavier (and you don’t need crumpet rings).

Makes 10-12
full fat milk 360ml
caster sugar ½ tsp
fresh yeast 14g, crumbled
strong white bread flour 125g
plain flour 125g
fine sea salt 1½ tsp
sunflower oil 3-5 tbsp

Warm the milk and sugar together in a medium saucepan until just warm (blood heat), then whisk in the yeast until dissolved.

Sift the flours into a large bowl and add the salt, the milk mixture and 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil. Whisk together until you have a smooth, thick batter mixture. Cover loosely with a cloth or clingfilm and leave somewhere warm to prove for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

You will need to cook the pikelets in three batches. Pour 2 tablespoons of oil into a large, heavy-based frying pan on a medium heat. When hot, pour in 3-4 separate ladlefuls of batter, leaving a little space between them as they spread out when cooking. Turn the heat right down and fry for 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

Remove the pikelets from the oil with a spatula and place them on kitchen paper to drain. Continue with the remaining two batches, using more oil as necessary. Serve warm, with butter and jam or honey.
