Following on with the baking theme after the Easy cheese muffin recipe, I have this fantastic crumpet recipe that produces the fluffiest crumpets I have ever made. I have added cinnamon to the mixture for a flavor difference but it is not essential to the recipe. Try them out this weekend for a sumptious breakfast, add a few fruit slices and lashings of butter and syrup, you won’t be sorry.
What you need
1 1/2 cups cake flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch salt (about 1/4 teaspoon)
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup melted butter
2 large eggs lightly beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
This is such an easy recipe. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix together to form a smooth batter.
Heat a knob of butter with about 1 teaspoon of sunflower or vegetable oil on medium to hot heat and spoon in amounts of about 1/5 cup for a nice size crumpet. Wait until the top has bubbles popping all over the surface and then turn over to brown the other side. As you turn them they will puff up beautifully.
These are really fantastic folks, you must try them.
