Homemade Crumpets

Makes 6

You will need:

  • 300ml whole milk
  • 7g fast acting yeast
  • 10g golden caster sugar
  • 250g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • Vegetable oil
  • Non-stick crumpet/egg rings

To make the homemade crumpets:

  • Warm the milk and sugar to hand temperature, pour into a large bowl or jug, sprinkle over the yeast and add the flour, mixing to a thick batter. Cover and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes dissolve the salt in 75ml of warm water and add the cider vinegar, whisk this into the batter, mixing well, cover and rest for a further 30 minutes.
  • Heat a heavy based frying pan over a medium heat, grease the pan with vegetable oil, wiping any excess with kitchen roll, use this to grease some non-stick rings and place them in the pan.
  • Pour in batter up to two thirds of the depth of the ring and cook for 8-10 minutes keeping a close eye on the heat to ensure the bases do not brown too quickly.
  • Once ready to flip the tops should have formed small holes, flip and cook for a further 2 minutes removing to a cooling rack once done.
  • Enjoy warm with butter and a selection of Cartwright & Butler Preserves.
