As a bit of trivia, Pikelet is the stage name of singer/songwriter Melbourne native Evelyn Morris. Aussies know it better as a small pancake sold ready-made on grocery shelves. Americans would be shocked to see pancakes sold this way. Yes, you can also make it from a recipe at home.

While Americans love to pour syrup over their hot pancakes, we Aussies love our pikelets hot or cold, with butter and sugar, or vegemite on it or used in a variety of main dishes. Well, maybe the vegemite is a bit of a stretch, but we’ve been told that some people swear by the combination.
