Breakfast (581)      Crumpets (2)     

crumpets, crumpet, buttered crumpet

There is nothing quite like a hot buttered crumpet for breakfast - or indeed anytime of the day. You can butter on toast, but somehow it just isn't the same. For some reason buttered crumpets add that extra comfort factor. Add a bit of vegemite into the equation and breakfast can't get much better.

There are a lot of different things we bake, be it cake, biscuits, or bread, but crumpets are something we tend to only buy from the store. Although they are not particularly hard to make, I think some people feel a bit intimidated by them. Crumpets do need patience, and equipment that you probably won't just have lying about your kitchen (crumpet dishes), but if you enjoy cooking from scratch then crumpets are well worth the effort.

How long it takes will depend on how many crumpet dishes you have and the size of your frying pan. I can make four crumpets in a batch.

Preparation Time: 1 hours 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes per batch
Makes: 17 servings

225g white bread flour
225g plain white flour
1 tsp fast action yeast
½ tsp salt
½ bicarbonate of soda
¾ tsp cream of tartar
500ml water
150ml almond milk
½ tbsp margarine (per batch)

Stir the flours, yeast, cream of tartar, and salt together with water.
Cover the bowl and let it rest for about an hour so that it starts bubbling.

Heat the milk in a saucepan, and stir in the bicarbonate of soda.

Pour the milk into the mixture and stir it until all the ingredient are fully incorporated.
Melt ½ tbsp of margarine in a large frying pan.
Grease the crumpet dishes and place them in the frying pan.


Spoon the batter into the dishes s they are just under half full.


Cook them for about 7 - 9 minutes on one side until they bubble (the first batch will need longer as the frying pan won't be as hot).


Flip them over to reveal a golden base and cook for another 20 seconds - 1 minute.


Leave the crumpets to cool for about a minute before easing them out of the dishes.

Repeat these steps until all the batter is used up.
