Double chocolate pikelets

Double chocolate pikelets



  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs raw cacao powder
  • 4 tbs vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips


Combine all ingredients, except the chocolate buttons and vegetable oil, and whisk to combine.

Set aside for about 15 minutes.

Heat a little of the vegetable oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Once the pan is hot, ladle 2 tbs batter into the hot pan per pikelet.

Dot the top of each pikelet with a few chocolate chips and, once you start to see a few bubbles on the surface, flip over with a spatula to cook the other side.

Do this for a minute or so before removing from the pan and repeating with remaining ingredients. Serve warm or cold.
