Ingredients (makes 6 crumpets):

150g plain white flour
200ml water
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried yeast

Method

Stage 1 – How to make the Crumpet Batter….

  • Add Flour, Water and Salt to a mixing bowl
  • Mix vigorously with a whisk until your arm aches (at least 5 mins) to create your crumpet batter
  • Mix a few ml’s of water into to your dried yeast
  • Add sugar, baking powder and yeast mixture to bowl and mix for another 30 seconds until you have a clear batter (and your arm aches even more!)
  • Cover mixing bowl and put into a warm place for 15 mins (top tip – make sure you’re mixing bowl is bigger than you need as it will expand)

Stage 2 – How to bake your crumpets…

  • Place a greased metal biscuit cutter (any shape cutter you have to hand will also do the trick) into the middle of a non-stick frying pan
  • Pre-heat your frying pan on a hob on a medium-high heat setting
  • Before you start, give your batter a stir to remove any large air bubbles
  • Use a ladle to drop approx. 60g batter into the cutter inside the pan
  • Wait for approx. 4 mins – carefully lift the ring off the crumpet
  • Remove baked Crumpet from pan (if the top looks a bit gooey flip over in the pan for a few seconds)
  • Cool
  • Repeat the above to make as many as you can eat!
  • Toast and enjoy with butter, or anything else you fancy to top off your dough-licious bake…
