Crumpets Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 8

15 g fresh yeast or 20 ml/ 4 tsp dried yeast
5 ml/1 tsp caster (superfine) sugar

300 ml milk
2 egg
250 g/9 oz plain (all-purpose) flour
5 ml/1 tsp salt
Oil for greasing

Method:

Mix the yeast and sugar with a little of the milk to a paste, then blend in the remaining milk and the egg. Stir the liquid into the flour and salt and mix to a creamy, thick batter. Cover and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes until doubled in size. Heat a griddle or heavy frying pan (skillet) and grease it lightly. Place 7.5 cm/3 in baking rings on the griddle.

 

(If you do not have baking rings, carefully cut the top and bottom off a small tin.) Pour cupfuls of the mixture into the rings and cook for about 5 minutes until the underside is browned and the top is pitted. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Serve toasted.
