Place flour, salt and sugar in a bowl and stir to combine.
Drop egg into the flour mixture and stir to combine. Gradually add enough milk to make a thick, smooth batter.
Heat a heavy based, non stick pan until hot. Spread a few drop of cooking oil around the pan. Drop several large spoonfuls of mixture into the pan.
Cook until bubbles appear and then flip the pikelet and cook until both sides are golden brown. Continue to cook until all of the batter is used. You may need to adjust the heat of the pan either up or down as the pikelets cook.
Serve warm or cold with jam, honey or cream.
