450g plain flour, sifted
½ tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp sachet fast-action dried yeast
300ml warm milk
300ml pint warm water
4 crumpet rings
(I use egg rings the crumpets are smaller but they do the job perfectly)
2. Leave in a warm place to rise for about an hour until it's a light, spongy texture. Stir well to knock out any air and pour into a large jug.
3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a very low heat with enough butter to have a thin coating on your pan. Wipe the pan with kitchen paper to remove excess butter. Sit the greased crumpet rings in the pan and leave to heat up for a couple of minutes.
4. Pour in enough mixture to fill the rings just over halfway up the sides. Leave to cook until plenty of small holes appear on the surface and the batter has just dried out. This will take about 8-10 minutes.
5. Remove the rings and turn over the crumpets to cook for a further minute or two on the other side. Sit the first batch of crumpets on a wire rack while continuing to cook the remaining mixture.
Number of Servings: 30
