Chocolate pikelets

My kids love pikelets - they love helping me to make them, and they love eating them hot off the griddle. It's fun to spruce up an old favourite with new flavours just for something different. Try these chocolate pikelets, or you can replace the cocoa with a mashed banana for banana pikelets, or both for banana chocolate pikelets. All very yummy!

1 egg

½ C sour, or fresh, milk with 1 tsp vinegar (or buttermilk)
