Nothing better than crumpets on a lazy Sunday morning.
These are great, I usually make a load and freeze them, then bring them out, thaw them and toast them on a Sunday morning.
- 150ml milk
- 150ml water
- 225g sifted strong flour
- 2tsp caster sugar
- 7g sachet of fast action dried yeast
- 1 tsp salt
Warm the milk and water, pour into a large bowl. Mix in the flour, sugar,yeast and salt. Whisk until smooth.
Cover and leave in a warm place ( I use the airing cupboard) for 1 hr until frothy.
Do not stir again!
Grease the inside of three or four metal rings.
Put the rings in a lightly oiled frying pan over a low heat.
Ladle a bit of the batter half way up into the rings. Cook for approx 6 mins, or until you see bubbles, then turn over for about 2 mins. You can take the rings away now.
Take out of pan and out on a wire rack, put rings back in and repeat the process until all the batter is used up.
