Australian breakfasts are very similar to those in the US and UK: most people eat cereal or oatmeal during the week, with larger breakfasts on the weekends. These can be savory, like “kiwi” breakfasts (consisting of lamb sausages and eggs), or sweet, frequently with lots of tropical fruits mixed in. One of the most popular sweet breakfast items is pikelets, which is the Aussie term for pancakes. Here’s a to-die-for strawberry and passionfruit topping recipe from Taste AU. The recipe calls for bought pancakes, but it will taste so much better on fresh, homemade ones!
Strawberry and Passionfruit Pikelets
- 2 tbs fresh ricotta
- 1 tbs strawberry jam
- 4 bought pikelets
- 4 strawberries, washed, hulled, thinly sliced
- 1 passionfruit, halved, pulp removed
- Step 1
Place ricotta and jam in a small bowl. Stir until well combined. Spread the ricotta mixture evenly over pikelets. Top with strawberries and passionfruit to serve.
