Easy egg pikelets

Easy egg pikelets


Makes 12-16 pikelets


  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp pouring cream
  • 2 tbsp wholemeal flour


Separate the egg whites from the yolks and place each in separate medium mixing bowls.

Mix cream and flour with egg yolks, season and set aside.

Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks then fold through the egg yolk mixture.

Bring a frying pan to medium heat and spray with coconut oil spray, or wipe some butter around the base and sides with a piece of paper towel.

Dollop tablespoons of pikelet batter into the pan. Cook for one minute then, very gently, flip and cook for a further minute, and serve.

    This pikelet recipe is horrible. Don’t make it it just tastes like flat scrambled egg… was a disappointment for the kids who helped make it.
