Loved for their nooks and crannies, perfect for soaking up butter and jam, crumpets are surprisingly easy to make at home. Traditionally British, crumpets are a staple at tea time and excellent toasted for breakfast. Use ring moulds to create perfectly round crumpets.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons quick-rising yeast
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method

In large bowl, stir together flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Stir in water and milk, scraping down side and mixing well. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand in warm draft-free place until bubbly and doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Heat griddle or large cast-iron skillet over medium heat; brush lightly with some of the oil. Grease 3-inch (8 cm) ring moulds and place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on pan. Scoop batter by scant 1/4 cup into moulds, filling halfway. Cook until surface is dry, 7 to 10 minutes.

Using tongs or wearing oven mitts, carefully remove ring moulds. Flip crumpets and cook just until light golden, about 2 minutes. Let cool on rack for 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
