(15 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank jeffery for this recipe.

Don't you need egg rings to prevent the mixture spreading and to allow the tubular holes to develop properly? They should be about 1/2 inch thick.

I have only tried crumpets from the grocerie store, and they are absolutely delicious, so today I am going to make this recipe. I will write back on how they turn out, which I am sure will be fantastic if you are a crumpet lover. Thanks.

I haven't used this recipe, but I used the one for crepes and added too much batter to the pan and ended up with a crumpet. So you could try that :-)

Mine came out too heavy - I think I should have made it thinner.

Just what type of griddle is used - pancake, waffle, hamburger?

Batter seemed too thick, so I added an extra cup of milk.
