Old-fashioned pikelets recipe using golden syrup.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 30 pikelets


  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 425 ml milk
  • 1 dessert spoon golden syrup
  • 3 cups SR flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 good pinch salt
  • 3 teaspoons melted butter


  • Beat eggs, sugar, golden syrup and some of the milk (I added 1/3 of the milk).
  • Add flour, salt and baking powder alternately with the rest of the milk.
  • Lastly, add melted butter and stir through.
  • Batter should not be too thin, so add more flour or less milk if necessary.
  • Grease griddle iron (or frying pan) sparingly and don't have too hot. Do not turn until they begin to bubble. One dessert spoon full of batter makes a nice sized pikelet.
