  • Cooking Method
    • Direct grill on plancha or griddle

Ingredients

  • 115g plain flour
  • 115g strong flour
  • Half teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 4g dried yeast
  • 250ml lukewarm water
  • Half teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 140ml lukewarm milk
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Method

1

Sift the flours and cream of tartar into a bowl and add in the yeast. Stir in the lukewarm water with a wooden spoon and leave covered for about an hour.

2

The dough will be full of little air bubbles. Add the salt and stir. The dough will fall at this point but will rise back up. Leave for 30 minutes

3

Stir in the bicarbonate of soda and the lukewarm milk. The batter should be a thick pouring consistency. Pour into a measuring jug as this makes it easier for pouring your drop crumpets

4

Heat your griddle to a high temperature. Put on a little vegetable oil to prevent sticking and pour little circles of mixture onto the griddle.

5

Cook for about 3 minutes on the first side. You should see lots of little bubbles form then pop – this gives the crumpet look.

6

Turn over and cook the other side.

7

Keep warm and eat with the topping of your choice. Lovely with just butter and honey.
