Walnut and honey pikelets

What’s a pikelet? A little pike of course…

And also a rich pancake/ drop scone kind of thing, which I’m told is a favourite in New Zealand.

This recipe is really easy and combines honey in the mixture, but is also wonderful served with honey (and creme fraiche). I’m definitely going to make it again…

1/3 cup ground walnuts

1/2 cup milk

1.5 tablespoon melted butter

3/4 cup flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp honey

1 egg

Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Cook in small spoonfuls on a lightly greased pan. Serve warm with honey and creme fraiche.

You can find other honey recipes in my book, Travels in Blood and Honey; becoming a beekeeper in Kosovo, published last year by Signal Books
