PIKELETS This wonderful recipe has been around since the 60's (or earlier) when my Mum used to make these. I remember her using the solid element on the stove top and using greaseproof paper and butter to grease the hotplate(can almost smell them now! ! )
2 eggs;3 tbsp caster sugar;1 1/2 cups plain flour;2 tsp cream of tartar;1 tsp of soda;1/2 teacup of milk (I use more as the mixture is quite thick)salt;1 tbsp melted butter. Sift flour and cream of tartar. Beat eggs and sugar well, then work in flour, adding milk in which b soda has been dissolved. :astly, add melted butter. TIP: pour mixture off the end of your spoon to get nice round pikelets.

Thanks for these. : ) My mum cooked her pikelets in exactly the same way. There's nothing quite like a perfect pikelet cooked on a solid hotplate. : )

No worries, cant keep a good recipe down!

Chef_cookessentials, May 14, 11:26 pm
Here is the one I posted on the Cooking Class 101 thread that I always use, so I can vouch for it!
Basic pancake batter 1 cup flour;1 tsp baking powder;1/2 tsp salt;1 egg;1 1/2 cups milk;15g of butter, melted;oil for frying. Sift flour, baking powder & salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add egg, milk and melted butter. Using a wooden spoon, gradually draw in the flour. Beat well. Cover and leave to stand one hour. Grease and heat pancake pan. Pour batter into a jug and pour in enough batter while tilting the pan to cover the bottom. Cook until small bubbles appear on the surface, about 1 min, then flip over using a metal spatula. These are lovely layered with a little butter, a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of caster sugar, just layer and repeat.

Pam's Creamy Potatoes

Here is my recipe that I posted on 13th Feb- it is quite delicious, but also rich, so a little at a time!
Someone was asking about your best potato recipe, I have FINALLY found my "Pam's creamy potatoes" recipe, so here it is.
25g butter, melted;1 clove garlic, crushed;1/4 tsp nutmeg;2 cups grated tasty cheese; 1 kg potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly;2 eggs, lightly beaten;1x 300ml carton cream;1 cup milk;1/2 cup stale breadcrumbs;fresh herbs to garnish.
combine melted butter, garlic and nutmeg in a bowl. Brush a shallow oven proof dish with half the butter mixture. Sprinkle half the cheese over the base and layer the potato slices. Combine remaining butter mix, eggs, cream and milk in a jug and pour gently over potato slices. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs ( I don't usually bother with the breadcrumbs) Bake in hot oven - 200C for about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender. (Cover with foil if top becomes too brown.

Supreme Vogels Bread.

½ cup kibbled wheat
¼ cup kibbled rye
4 cups high grade bread flour
1 cup whole meal flour
¼ cup rolled oats
½ cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
3 Tbsp flax seed
3 Tbsp sesame seeds
2 Tbsp gluten
1/2 teaspoon of "Active dry yeast". not "sure to rise yeast"
3 teaspoons salt. [3 tsp]
3 Tablespoons of Psyllium Husks
2 & 1/2 cups cold water
1 & 1/4 cups of milk
1 tsp wine or cider vinegar

Place the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well
Add water, milk and vinegar
Mix well until a shaggy, wet dough forms.
Cover bowl and dough with a plastic bag and leave in a warm place in winter or on bench in summer for 12 -18 hours to rise. Leave for longer if cold weather, it needs to have bubbles forming on the top of the dough when ready
When dough is bubbly on top, stir and fold dough over on itself once or twice, it is a very wet sticky dough.
Spoon the dough into the tins evenly. Tent the dough with a plastic bag, or up-turn a large plastic bowl over so as it does not come in contact with the dough at all.
Leave for at least 2 hours to near double in size.
Bake 180 deg C,
Bake 60 to 75 minutes
Remove from oven, tip bread onto a rack, cover with a tea towel and leave to cool.
Do not slice until cold.

I did paint the tins with tin glide.
Tin glide:
melt 4ozs of fat add 1oz of vegetable oil, stir in 2 oz flour. mix well. keep out of the fridge, in a cool place. You may need to melt and stir a bit to use.
A lot of your input went into this thread, but it will get more exposure in here.

Chef_cookessentials, May 15, 12:11 am
