A perfect morning or afternoon snack for the whole family. I let my toddler help with the mixing.

Ingredients (makes 12 Pikelets)

  • 1 cup Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 25 gm Butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1 Egg (lightly beaten)
  • 180 ml Milk
  • 1 Banana (mashed)


  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and mix in the sugar and salt.
  2. Add the butter, eggs and milk and whisk until smooth. Stir the mashed banana into the batter.
  3. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add a small amount of butter or spray canola oil (to stop the (pikelets sticking).
  4. Pour batter into the frying pan (approximately 1/4 cup per pikelet). Cook until bubbles start to form on top and then flip and cook for around 1-2 minutes.

Notes... I sometimes use honey instead of the sugar in which case I add a little bit more flour to compensate for the reduced amount of dry ingredients.

  • Now I know what to do with my d bananas great recipe thanks for sharing


  • i reckon that i will give this a try with the suggested ingredient of honey. cheers for the tip


  • I need to use a heap of bananas sounds yum.


  • Love pikelets with little added extras


  • Love making pikelets and using different things in them hidden.


  • Ohhh. Yummm.


  • I haven’t used wholemeal flour in pikelets. Sounds healthier.


  • My kids will enjoy making this variation. I’m getting sick of the green ones being made with green food colouring.

    • Rainbow coloured pikelets can be a lot of fun.


  • Pikelets are a good recipe for kids to help with in the kitchen. They can add a variety of different ingredients to them and have fun cooking and creating yummy pikelet creations.


  • Love pikelets, so versatile as far as hiding fruits and veggies from the kids. Can’t come at the wholemeal version though. I know it’s healthier, but I don’t like it :/


  • I love the name of this dish!


  • A fab recipe to enjoy on Sunday morning! Thanks!
