Step 2: Measure Flours

In a bowl measure out 175g of strong white flour

Add 175g of plain flour and mix

Step 3: Adding the Yeast

In a small saucepan add a teaspoon of caster sugar

Measure out 350ml of milk and add to the pan

Heat the pan of milk containing the sugar on a low heat until warm, stirring regularly (this will warm quickly)

Once warm add 2 teaspoons of yeast, stir and leave for 3 minutes

Step 4: Mixing the Dough

Add this milk and yeast mix to the flour and mix thoroughly

Cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave for 1 hour

Step 5: Add Bicarbonate Solution

Into a new bowl add ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Add 1 teaspoon of salt Add 200ml warm water to the mix and stir

Slowly add and mix the solution into the dough which will be ballooned up after sitting for 1 hour

Step 6: Cooking the Crumpets

Rub a small amount of butter around the inside of your crumpet rings

Heat a frying pan on a medium heat

Place the crumpet rings into the pan and add a teaspoon of sunflower oil between two rings

Spoon 2 tablespoons of crumpet dough into each crumpet ring (the ring should be between half and two thirds full of dough as it will grow as it cooks)

As the crumpets cook you'll see bubbles appear and slowly the surface of the crumpets will develop a skin

Run a knife around the ring to release any crumpet dough that may be attached and remove the rings carefully with a clean tea towel (these rings will be hot)

Now for the difficult bit, the flipping of the crumpets. The crumpets will still have wet dough in the middle just below the surface so flipping them needs to be done quickly and without lifting the crumpet to far away from the pan before the actual flip action. Use a stiff spatula, and cook the crumpet tops until golden.

Allow your crumpets to cool and toast to your personal preference before eating!

Tastes great.
These are good. A Practise run before Xmas. They are best left to cool then toasted.
<p>No! I am completely blown away.... I did not even think it possible to make crumpets at home. I will have to try using my egg rings.</p>
Crumpet rings? I've been making crumpets my whole life, never heard of crumpet rings. I guess people will buy anything...
<p>Marmite - your my HERO! Good recipe as well</p>
