    Nikki's Note:

    This is my mom's recipe for traditional SOUTH AFRICAN crumpets (little pancakes, or flapjacks). They are great for kids and they are melt in the mouth! My mom used to make a huge amount to send to school for birthdays - what a hit! They don't have yeast, so if you are looking for another type of crumpet, this isn't the recipe for you.

      I just used this recipe, because I too was looking for a traditional crumpet recipe that my mom used to make in SA. But after starting, I realised I was out of baking powder *shakes head*!
      Anyhoo, I started all over again, and used Self - Raising flour instead, and water instead of milk (my ma always used water instead of milk). They came out superb!!! Even my Irish born kids loved them. I used Jam and Syrup! Thanks so much for the recipe!!! Another ex-Durbanite!!! By the way, I got the 'porous holes' when I was making mine, and I didn't use yeast.... And mine were the proper SA crumpets that I grew up with.

      This is the BEST crumpet recipe I have ever used. My grandmother also gave me this exact same recipe:) I halved the mixture, which makes just enough for 2/3 people and served with butter and syrup! YUM! Thank you for sharing Nikki! 5 *star rating!
