Pikelets are a popular 17th century Welsh pancake-like sweet treat which made its way into the West Midlands, England area. When cooked to perfection, pikelets have light crispy edges that melt in the mouth. People usually serve them up as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner meal, sometimes with fresh fruit atop.
