Has anyone ever made crumpets before?

I found this recipe in a Welsh cookbook (tourist type of book):

8 oz flour
2 oz brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 small egg
1 cup milk

mix the first 3 ingredients
in a small bowl beat the egg and add the milk to it
then mix the wet into the dry ingredients until smooth

place a full tablespoon of batter onto a hot griddle (lightly greased with the excess wiped off) and when the bubbles break and set, flip and cook on the reverse.

serve hot with butter and sprinkled with sugar.


They turned out nice (I guess, I never had them before) they are tasty and a little chewy. It was a nice treat for breakfast this morning and would go well with jam and tea.

A crumpet looks like a whole English muffin. But you don't cut it in half and it's kind of squishy...kind of like a........ thick crepe. Not exactly but it's the closest thing I can think of. But they are DE-LISH!

yes, and you griddle them so they have that pancake "skin." Mine were about 1/4 inch thick and about 2-3 inches diameter.

Gotta try it - never had one! Thanks. Not sure how I'll know whether I've got it "right" but I will know whether I like what I turn out or not!
