BM #96 Week 2 Day 3 - 

To end this series of Elevenses, here are the typical British version of Crumpets. I have been reading about these from my childhood right from those Enid Blyton series, Victorian era historical fiction books etc. 

Finally I got to make them and feel that these are just glorified pancakes. The difference being that these are yeasted and fermented. But my family differs. They say that these are way better than the pancakes and mandate every bit of hype.

I wasn't sure my kids would like these, so as an experiment I made a very small portion and like it always happens, the lesser the portion, the better the taste. That is what happened and I ended up repeating these crumpets and have been told that these should be made regularly at home.

Ingredients - 

All purpose Flour 1/2 cup
Salt 2 pinches
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Yeast 3/4 tsp (I used Active Dry Yeast)
Milk, warm 1/2 cup (suitable for the yeast to grow)
Water 2-3 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, salt, baking soda and yeast. Set aside.

Add warm milk to the flour mixture and whisk well to get a smooth batter. Add water if needed.

Cover and set aside for about an hour in a warm place for fermentation.

After an hour, the batter is frothy and bubbly.

I used a 3 inch pan to make these crumpets. But if you have the pancake rings, please use them.

In a heated pan pour about 2 ladlefuls of batter and allow it to cook. Wait until the bubbles pop and the underside looks done. Flip and cook the other side as well.

Remove and continue to make another crumpet.

Serve with any fruit compote and clotted cream or jam.

  2. derinitely brings back memories of reading Enid Blyton under the sheets, even when the lights were supposed to be out. and so glad your family loved it, Harini !

  3. Isn't it strange, whenever we are skeptical about a recipe and make a small batch as an experiment, it turns out the best.

  4. Enid Blyton was a rage , I remember how I would finish the complete book , .. what memories ! The pancakes look super ones , must try the yeasted ones .

  5. rajani Says:
  6. oh now I have to give this recipe a try! Bookmarking this just to see how yeast would fare in a pancake like recipe :-)

  7. Yeasted pancakes sound like a good option instead of eggs and no wonders you had to make it again.

  15. Haha, that is so true. Whenever we make it less, we end up wanting more as everyone likes it. The crumpets looks delicious. Even I want to make this, after I made the english muffins. The pics are really tempting me to try it now.
