DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour and salt.
  • Mix the yeast with a few tablespoons of the warm water.
  • Whisk three-quarters of the remaining warm water into the flour and then add the yeasty liquid.
  • Cover and leave in a warm place until the mixture has risen.
  • Once risen, check the consistency.
  • If the batter is very thick, loosen with the remaining water.
  • The batter should now be left to stand for 8-10 minutes.
  • Warm a non-stick frying pan on a low heat.
  • Butter some crumpet rings or small tartlet rings.
  • Place the rings into the frying pan and pour in some of the batter until half-full (1/4 to 1/2 inches deep).
  • Cook on a low heat until small holes appear and the top has started to dry.
  • The bottom of the crumpet will now be golden and it can be turned over and cooked for another minute.
  • The crumpets are now ready for lots of melting butter!
  • Note: The crumpets can be cooked without turning - simply cook until the tops are completely dry.
  • The finely grated zest of 1 lemon can also be added to the batter to give a lemon bite.
