(15 servings)

  • 3 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoon butter - melted
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
  • additional butter for greasing
In large bowl, stir together yeast and water. Let stand five minutes then add warm milk, butter, salt, and sugar. Stir in flour until the batter has a slightly elastic consistency. Cover and let stand 45 minutes. Stir in dissolved soda, cover, and let rise 20 to 30 minutes.

Grease griddle and heat over medium-low heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto griddle, spacing 2 inches apart. Reduce heat to low, cover griddle and cook crumpets until tops look dry, about 15 minutes. They will look a little gummy, but will be done; do not turn over.

Repeat until batter is used up. Toast before serving.

Don't forget to toast them before you eat them. Top with butter and honey and you'll never go wrong.
