Gluten Free Pikelets

Yesterday I decided to experiment with gluten free pikelets. For some reason whenever I make anything gluten free from scratch it ends up tasting not so great. I can do main meals, but baked goods just taste, well, I can't really put my finger on it, but they don't taste like they should!

I have found my favourite brand of a few things, Macro. I love thier chocolate mudcake and their buttermilk pancake mix. They turn out right every time I make them and they are so easy. No, this is not a sponsored post from them, I just happen to really like them. I am pretty excited too as they keep expanding their range.

Tonight I decided instead of plain ones I would mix it up and we could have a few flavours.
- raspberry
- honey and cinnamon
- raspberry, honey and cinnamon (these were my favourites)

I did a few plain as well for my daughter how does not really like anything not plain. I could only get my husband to try the plain ones. He was screwing up his face before he even tasted them because they were gluten free, which in his mind equates to tasteless or yuck. (My attempts have not exactly helped to change this opinion).

My daughters kept trying to steal them off the plate as I was cooking.

It was so easy to make as the bottle is one of those just add water and shake mixes. To create my flavours here is what I did.

Pour batter onto puttered pan then crushed 1 frozen raspberry to each pikelet.

Honey and Cinnamon
Pour batter onto buttered pan. Swirl about 1/2 tsp of honey on to the batter then sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon over them.

Raspberry, Honey and Cinnamon
Pour batter onto buttered pan, crush 1 frozen raspberry over the pikelet, swirl 1/2 tsp honey over it then sprinkle with cinnamon.

I just cooked them for a few minutes either side and served. You could dust with sugar if you want, but we ate them just like that.



  1. My husband is the same... GF equals "No Thanks", but those pikelets go down a treat hey! Glad the girls liked them :)

  2. Can I be so bold and tell you that I have a rippa of a gluten free pikelet recipe on my blog? I agree though, it is really easy to shake and pour.
