Apple pikelets

Wow! It is bucketing down today! Sydney is awash with grey clouds. Master 3 and I attended playgroup with a great rendition of the hokey pokey.
I decided to start a blog to document the growth and progress of my new little business “Toffeeapple Kidswear” and one thing I have found is that I am open to distractions. This has to stop. So today I have tried to do my homework for the St George Business Mentoring seminars I am attending. I am to work out my profit & loss, break even point, equity and working capital and complete a budget and cashflow for the next 90 days. And…well…am distracted.
So in order to put the distraction into productive use I will prepare afternoon tea for the older kiddies before they get home from school. Apple pikelets today. I always hope they leave some but there is never any left! They are yummy with butter, jam, golden syrup or just on their own. The recipe is from
Apple Pikelets
1 ½ cups of self raising flour, sifted
2 tablespoons of caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
300 ml buttermilk
½ cup apple puree (I have used a tin of apple baby food and even grated apple)                              
1.      Combine flour and sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk egg and buttermilk together in a jug. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Whisk until smooth. Stir in puree.
2.      Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Brush base with butter. Using tablespoons of batter at a time, cook in batches for 2 to 3 minutes or until small bubbles start to form on the surface of pikelets. Carefully turn over. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
