"CRUMPETS" Nancys folly! (a first attempt.)

Nancy J. Patrykus


I know, I know, they look more like
pancakes than crumpets!
But they do taste like a crumpet, and real good.I am glad I attempted to make these. This is my first time, so now I got the feel of it, and know what to do next time.First off do not attempt to make these with out crumpet rings! or they will end up looking like mine!
I did try to use rings from a couple tuna cans. That was a wrong decision. The recipe I used was a good one.I urge you to branch out and make them. They really are delicious. The little holes that form, you can load with butter! YUM! YUM!

  • 2-1/2 c
    warm milk.....about 110 temperature
  • 1 tsp
  • 2 tsp
    active dry yeast
  • 2-2/3 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp
  • 1-1/2 tsp
    baking soda

How to Make "CRUMPETS" Nancys folly! (a first attempt.)


  1. Mix 1 cup of the warm milk, and all the sugar into a small bowl.
    Sprinkle yeast on top of the warm milk
    and let set for 10 minutes.
    While you are waiting,mix flour,salt,and baking soda in a medium size bowl.
    Add the yeast mixture and the remaing 1-1/2 cups of the warm milk to the flour mixture and stir to combine.
    This will be a thick liquid.
    Cover the bowl and put in a warm place for
    about 1 hour.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet or a griddle
    to a med-low heat.
    Butter the insides of your crumpet rings and place them on the skillet.
    Fill up each crumpet ring only 1/2 way up. COOK.
    After about 3-4 minutes you should be able to remove the rings with metal tongs.
    Leaving crumpets in the skillet.
    If you wait longer the crumpets will
    stick & cling to the rings.
    After about 4-5 minutes, when the tops have hardened a bit...it is time to flip them over and cook them another minute.
    The crumpets will have bubbles forming on top.
    Picture #2 is the tuna can rings I tried to use for crumpets.
    This was a wrong decision..putting the batter, 1/2 way up the tuna fish rings made them to thick
    and the insides did not cook.
    When I tried to remove the rings, all the dough stuck to the rings.
    End result.
    I will buy crumpet rings,or have crumpet pancakes!
    Oh well...live and learn....LOL !!
  3. You can serve them immediatly,
    with jam,honey,or butter.
    Or cool for later and toast before serving.
    Picture #3 is my attempt of crumpets
    cooked with-out the metal rings.
    They still tast good..but not a perfect circle.
