pikelets and peanut butter

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Going to try out pikelets/drop scones with Eva tomorrow as she is getting bored with breakfast. What do you serve with them? Fruit? Jam? Cream?

And about peanut butter, I've read that it's usually the 2nd dose of it which gives a bigger reaction if there's an allergy involved. How long do you wait before giving the 2nd dose? Is it a '5-day rule' sort of thing with this?

Re pikelets, I just often give them plain. Sometimes I make them using grated apple and cinnamon so no need for anything else. I only use jam and cream if we have guests.

Toasted with butter (or jam)!!

Sorry no idea about the peanut butter. I would guess that 5 days would be a sensible time?

MJ loves them with honey, cream cheese and slices of banana. I make them sugar free but add cinnamon and sometimes dried fruit to them.

Little drizzle of golden syrup here! Or for savoury drop scones I add grated cheese and chopped defrosted spinach to the mix before cooking. They don't need anything on top.

It takes a few weeks for a long term immune response to develop (I'm thinking in terms of development of a protective immune response to disease), I doubt you'd get a big response after five days. Of course you're not actually trying to induce an immune response so regular exposure over a period of time is required.
