This is another delicious recipe from Traditional Scottish Cookery, and it is very popular in the Grampian Mountains region of Scotland. The Scottish crumpet is thinner and wider than the traditional English crumpet.

How to Make SCOTTISH CRUMPETS

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the sugar and egg until thickened and pale in color. Stir in 2/3 cup of the milk until well blended.
  2. Add the flour, salt, and cream of tartar and blend until smooth.
  3. Mix the baking soda with the remaining milk and stir into the mixture.
  4. Heat a greased griddle or heavy, large skillet. Add large spoonfuls of the batter and cook over medium heat until golden brown on the bottom and bubbles are forming and bursting on top, much like pancakes.
