  • Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  • To make crumpet rings, cut aluminum foil into 7x12 inch pieces.
  • Fold in half lengthwise and then in thirds, making 6 layers.
  • Form into a 3 1/2 inch diameter circle and tape shut on the outside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour and salt.
  • Stir in the milk, oil and yeast mixture.
  • Beat well until smooth.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 60 minutes.
  • Lightly grease or butter the inside of the crumpet rings and dip the rings in cornmeal.
  • Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium low heat.
  • Sprinkle cornmeal on the griddle and place the rings on the griddle.
  • Deflate the batter by stirring.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of batter into each ring.
  • Cook slowly for about 10 minutes or until pale brown.
