Old School Crumpets

Posted on Leave a comment

“Loveuary,” on Hallmark Channel has been full of romantic, Jane Austen inspired movies! To finish off a lovely month, I’m making crumpets! A traditional British breakfast, or accompaniment to afternoon tea. It’s the original English muffin, but so much better than what you could find in a store!


– 1 cup flour

-3/4 cup warm water plus 1 Tablespoon

-1/2 teaspoon sugar

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1 teaspoon baking powder

-dash of cinnamon

-1 teaspoon dry-active yeast

-1 tablespoon warm water


In a large bowl, whisk flour, warm water and salt until it forms a pasty dough.

In a smaller bowl, combine yeast with warm water and stir until dissolved. Add it into dough mixture. Then add sugar, baking powder and cinnamon.

Cover bowl and place in a warm spot for about 25 minutes. You will see bubbles form and a bit more volume.

Next, on a griddle or skillet, melt a bit of butter. Take a round, metal biscuit cutter and spread butter on the inside edges. Place on hot skillet and fill half way with batter. Keep on low/medium heat.

 Once the bubbles on top stop popping on their own, you can manually pop the rest with the sharp tip of a knife. Carefully remove metal ring and flip on other side for about 30 seconds until it’s golden.

To make it extra yummy, you can mix some honey with butter and slather it on top. Watch it melt into those homemade nooks and crannies!
