SERVES
Time
15 crumpets6 minutes

Ingredients Crumpets :

  1. 200 g strong plain flour
  2. ¼ teaspoon salt
  3. ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  4. 1 teaspoon dried yeast
  5. 175 ml warm milk
  6. 200 ml warm water
  7. oil for frying
  8. butter for serving

Instructions :

1- Sift the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl; stir in the yeast.
2- Make a well in the centre, pour in the milk and water and mix to a thick batter. Beat for about 5 minutes with a wooden spoon, then cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about an hour. Beat for another two minutes, and turn into a jug.
3- Heat a big non-stick frying pan; brush it with a little oil. Use 4 crumpet rings (or 7.5 cm diameter pastry cutters): oil the insides, place them on the fryingpan surface while it is over the heat and let them, too, become hot (about 2 minutes). Pour batter into each ring to about 1 cm thickness. Let them cook for about 6 minutes, till the surface is set. Then remove the metal rings, turn the crumpets over in the pan and cook for just 1 more minute. Put them on a wire rack while continuing with the rest of the batter, oiling the pan and the rings each time.
4- Then, just before serving, toast the crumpets. Serve hot with the butter.
