“My Aussie friend uses this recipe as her standard pancake recipe. Pikelets are the Scottish version of the southern British crumpet. They are also great for afternoon teas. Serve with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and sugar, or with butter and jam. I always thought that I had the best pancake recipe in the world until I tried these!”

I found this recipe very misleading. What we in Scotland call a Pancake, sassenachs and other non-Celts call a DROP SCONE. That which the Southern Brittish call a Pancake, we Scots call a crumpet. You North Americans also call it a pancake, which you eat with Maple Syrup, Ice Cream, etc.

This is a good recipe, but a bit runny and much better if you use golden syrup instead of sugar. (I think you lot call it corn syrup?) By the way, pikelets are Welsh. These are drop scones. To DannyMuirMhor: Who're you calling a sassanach, ye raj? ;)

Made this this morning and they tasted great! they are supposed to be thin and crispy, not thick and doughy like a crumpet so i followed the measurements from the original posting of the recipe. Just right!
