AUSTRALIAN FOOD AND RECIPES

Pikelets

Unlike American pancakes, the Australian pikelets can be purchased ready-made in grocery stores. Parents often pack them in their child's school lunch or serve as a snack.

They can also be served hot, of course, with a variety of toppings such as cream, jam and/or strawberries.
