breakfast, tomake


150g plain white flour

200ml water

½ tsp salt

½ tsp sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp dried yeast (3 tsp fresh yeast)


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 minutes) 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 your 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)


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…
