Crumpets



Crumpets are spongy, mild flavored yeast cakes. They are made in the same way as muffins; only the paste is still softer, approaching batter in its consistency. Crumpets are usually eaten with butter and served with tea, but you can eat them any way you like.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 oz. fresh yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups lukewarm milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 oz.butter
  • 3-4 cups flour

Instructions
Mix yeast with a little of the milk. Mix rest of milk with the butter and heat it to lukewarm. Beat the egg, and add egg, salt, and flour to the milk and butter; mix well. Add the yeast and mix well again. Cover the dough, keep in a warm place, and let rest for 15 min. Then shape the dough into 10-12 round balls and mould each in a ring (or round cookie cutter) 3-4 inches in diameter. Allow to rise for 15-20 min. Bake on a buttered tray at 400 degrees until light brown-- or, more traditionally, bake on a griddle (be sure to flip them over after a couple of minutes and do the other side). Split and serve with butter.
