Best ever pikelet recipe

Miss 1 1/2 adores pikelets and they make a quick and easy snack, so when I saw a half carton of buttermilk in my fridge this morning I decided that she was in luck. I love this recipe - it's quick, easy, low in sugar and the pikelets are beautifully light and fluffy.

Serves: Makes approximately 20 pikelets
Food Critic Rating: These are an all round family favourite, but Miss 1 1/2 goes crazy over them.

1 cup self raising flour
1 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp caster sugar
1 lightly beaten egg

Place sifted flour and sugar in a medium bowl.
Combine beaten egg and buttermilk and then add to the sugar and flour, using a whisk, until a smooth thick batter forms.
Drop level tablespoons (this is the trick to keeping an even size) into a lightly oiled, heavy based frying pan. When bubbles begin to form on the surface, flip over and cook until golden brown.
