How can you actually boil it down to one thing? There's so many options, many of which I've posted about before - Italian classics like Crostoli, Panna cotta and Zabaglione, the toffee-crusted delight that is Crème Brûlée and the simply comforting fruit crumbles.
After much thought I decided to make something that was quick and easy and is capable of satisfying any craving at any time. With only three ingredients and taking less than 10 minutes you too can answer that sugar call with a warming stack of pikelets.
1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup milk
Sift the flour into a bowl, add the egg and milk and whisk until combined. Let it sit for 5 minutes before cooking.
Heat up a heavy-based skillet (cast iron is great for this) and when hot, brush with a little butter - pour in about a ¼ cup of batter into the centre of the pan. Let it cook, undisturbed - you should notice bubbles appearing on the surface and when it looks to be drying out, flip the pikelet over to finish cooking.
Turn out onto a plate and repeat the process with the remaining mixture.
When they are all cooked serve at once.
Enjoy them with lashing of butter or just plain with jam.
