Hot & Fresh Crumpets

04/13/2017 — By Robert Eastham


It can be tricky to find crumpets for sale in American supermarkets, but even when you can pop into your local Tesco for a pack or two nothing beats home-made crumpets straight from the griddle. They might look complicated, but once you've got the metal rings ready to go it's as simple as mixing the ingredients together!


You will need:

Flat griddle or grill pan

Crumpet rings (English Muffin rings will do)

2/3lb Plain Flour

1 cup warm Milk

2/3 cup warm Water

2 tsp Yeast

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sugar

1/3 tsp salt


Mix together the milk and water before pouring in the yeast and sugar. Whisk in the flour, baking powder and salt. If the batter is too thick add water a little at a time until it becomes the consistency of thick cream.

Cover with cling-film and leave for 30 minutes - 1 hour until the batter starts to bubble. 

Grease the crumpet rings and place them on a griddle heated to a medium heat. Pour in the crumpet batter, making sure none spills from the bottom.

Cook for 4-5 minutes before removing the crumpet rings with some tongs. Cook for a further 6 minutes, turn over and cook for 6-10 minutes until both sides have browned.
