A thin kind of crumpet.
- There has always been some confusion between muffins, crumpets, and pikelets, both in recipes and in name.
- For years the Goldies brought their own baking to the dances, collectively supplying pikelets, scones, biscuits, sandwiches, cream cakes and an assortment of other pick-up food.

Late 18th century: from Welsh (bara) pyglyd 'pitchy (bread)'.
