WITH supermarkets being short on supplies, many Brits have been opening their cookbooks and making food from scratch.
This week, a foodie has shared their simple recipe for making golden crumpets from scratch – and it has blown the minds of internet users.
Writing in the Facebook group Rate My Plate, he said: “First time making home made crumpets.”
He then attached his own snaps of bubbly crumpets which easily look like they could be shop-bought.
The recipe involves ingredients many of us already have in the cupboard, but you will need egg rings or a ring that is around 3in in diameter to create the shape.
Keen to give them a try? Here is the recipe…
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE CRUMPETS
- 400ml milk
- 300g white flour
- One teaspoon caster sugar
- One tablespoon yeast
- One teaspoon salt
- Half a teaspoon of Bicarbonate of soda
- Warm the milk and add the sugar and yeast, plus 100ml of lukewarm water. Leave for 15 minutes or until it is frothy.
- Sift the flour, one teaspoon of salt and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl. Make a well and add the yeast mix.
- Whisk from the middle out until the mix is thick like cream.
- Cover with a damp cloth and leave for 45 minutes.
- Grease some egg rings with oil.
- Wipe oil around a frying pan and place on medium to high heat.
- When hot, add four tablespoons of batter into each ring, cooking for five minutes or until bubbles pop through the surface.
- Remove the rings and flip the crumpets.
- Serve with butter.
