For the pikelet batter, add flour and baking powder together in a medium mixing bowl, stirring to combine.

In a large jug add honey, milk, melted butter and egg, whisking to combine. Pour over the flour mixture, stirring to combine. Add fruit combination of choice, stirring to combine.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat. Add a little extra butter to the pan until melted.

Using a spatula, carefully turn pikelets and cook for a further 2 minutes or until golden.
