CRUMPETS



Crumpets image

My local grocery store quit selling crumpets, so I decided to try my hand at making my own! These are a nice alternative to English muffins. To serve, toast the crumpets whole and spread with butter, honey, jelly, or your favorite topping.

Time 1h50m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients: 10

2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
2 ¾ cups warm water, divided
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons dry milk powder
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon baking soda

Steps:

  • Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1 cup of warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix flour, milk powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle. Add the yeast mixture and remaining 1 3/4 cups warm water. Mix well with a wooden spoon until dough is the consistency of cake or waffle batter. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm spot until bubbly, about 1 hour.
  • Combine 2 tablespoons water and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix into the batter. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a cast iron griddle or nonstick pan over medium heat. Lightly grease the griddle and inside of the crumpet rings with cooking spray. Arrange the rings on the griddle.
  • Fill crumpet rings 2/3 of the way with batter. Cook until tops are covered in bubbles and starting to look dry, 5 to 8 minutes. Carefully lift up crumpet rings, flip the crumpets, and cook until second side is lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn heat down if crumpet is overly dark or still raw in the middle.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons quick-rise instant yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups warm water (112 to 118 degrees F/44 to 48 degrees C)
1 ¼ cups warm milk (112 to 118 degrees F/44 to 48 degrees C)

Steps:

  • Whisk 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Combine water and milk in a separate bowl and quickly whisk the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until batter is thick and smooth. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until spongy, about 1 hour. Stir dough to reduce sponginess.
  • Place a rack into the oven and preheat to 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
  • Spray a skillet and round metal open-top cookie cutters or crumpet molds with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-low heat, place the metal cutters or molds into the skillet, and let the molds heat up. Spoon batter into the molds, filling them about halfway. Let the crumpets cook until the bottoms are browned, the tops appear nearly dry, and popped bubbles appear on top, about 5 minutes.
  • Use tongs to lift molds out of the pan; remove molds from the crumpets. Flip and return crumpets to skillet to cook the other sides until browned, 1 to 2 more minutes. Repeat with remaining dough. Keep cooked crumpets warm on rack in the preheated oven while you cook remaining crumpets.

Crumpets image

Recipe From foodnetwork.com

Provided by Bobby Flay

Time 2h45m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients: 18

1 1/4 cups milk
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups water, lukewarm
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 tablespoon clover honey
2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
Nonstick spray
Whipped Butter, for serving, recipe follows
Orange-Blueberry Marmalade, for serving, recipe follows
1 cup cold heavy cream
Pinch sea salt
8 medium oranges
4 lemons
2 cups fresh blueberries
6 cups sugar
2 pouches liquid fruit pectin

Steps:

  • In a small saucepan, heat the milk until lukewarm. Combine the milk, flour, water, butter, honey, yeast, baking powder and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the dough hook attachment, mix on high speed until completely blended and a soft dough has formed, 2 minutes. Remove the bowl, cover with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and put in a warm spot until risen and bubbly, about 1 hour.
  • Lightly spray a cast-iron or nonstick skillet or griddle with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Spray the metal rings well with non-stick spray and place them in the pan or on the griddle. Fill each ring with a scant 1/4 cup of the batter.
  • Cook until the crumpets are set and the bottoms are lightly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the rings, flip the crumpets and cook until completely cooked through and the bottoms are lightly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes longer. While they are cooking, wash and spray the rings with nonstick spray for the next batch.
  • Butter the tops with the Whipped Butter and spread with the Orange-Blueberry Marmalade. Or split the crumpets and toast (like you would an English muffin), and spread with the Whipped Butter and Orange-Blueberry Marmalade.
  • Combine the cream and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the whip attachment, whip on high speed until the cream is light and fluffy and turns to butter. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the butter into a bowl and chill for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest of the oranges and lemons. Cut the zest pieces into thin slices, then finely chop or grind and set aside.
  • Peel the remaining white part of the peel from the fruit and discard. Chop the fruit pulp, reserving any juice and set aside.
  • Place the zest and 1 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the reserved fruit pulp and juice, cover and simmer on low heat for an additional 7 minutes. Add the blueberries and simmer for 3 more minutes.
  • Stir the sugar into the fruit in the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil and cook exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the pectin. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Serve at room temperature.


EASY CRUMPETS

This is my mom's recipe for traditional SOUTH AFRICAN crumpets (little pancakes, or flapjacks). They are great for kids and they are melt in the mouth! My mom used to make a huge amount to send to school for birthdays - what a hit! They don't have yeast, so if you are looking for another type of crumpet, this isn't the recipe for you.

  1. Stir the sugar and yeast into the warm milk and let it rest for 10 minutes until frothy. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer combine the flour and salt.
  2. Stir the sugar and yeast into the warm milk and let it rest for 10 minutes until frothy. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer combine the flour and salt.
  3. Add the liquid to the flour mixture and stir/knead until a thick dough forms. If using a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment and beat the mixture for about 3 minutes until a thick dough forms. Cover the bowl loosely with plastic wrap and set it in a warm place for at least an hour or up to two to let the dough rise (it should nearly double in size). This stage is important for the formation of the bubbles that will later form the classic holes in the crumpets.
  4. Dissolve the baking soda in the warm water and add it to the dough. If using a stand mixer, beat the batter for a minute or two. Or use an electric mixer to beat the batter. If some small lumps remain that's okay. Any remaining lumps will dissolve during the next resting stage.Cover the batter and let it rest in a warm place for at least 30 minutes (see note below). After 30 minutes the batter should be nice and bubbly.
  5. Prepare the crumpet rings by greasing the inside of each rim. (I use and like Norpro's English Muffin/Crumpet Rings.) Lightly oil the frying pan. You can use a regular skillet or a cast iron pan (my preference). I use my Lodge 12" Cast Iron Pan.Place the rings in the frying pan over medium-high heat.

  3. It will expand and become bubbly. Towards the end of the rest, preheat a griddle to medium-low, about 325°F.
  4. If you don't have an electric griddle, preheat a frying pan; it shouldn't be as hot as the temperature you use to cook pancakes., Lightly grease the griddle or frying pan, and place well-greased 3 3/4" English muffin rings in the pan, as many as will fit. (If you don't have English muffin rings, use well-cleaned tuna cans, from which you've removed the top and bottom.) Pour sticky batter by the scant 1/4-cupful into each ring; a muffin scoop works well here., After about 4 minutes, use a pair of tongs to slip the rings off.

  1. Stir together buttermilk, sugar, and yeast in a medium bowl. Let stand until frothy and bubbly on surface, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all-purpose flour, spelt flour, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; beat on low speed until combined, about 20 seconds
  2. Stir together buttermilk, sugar, and yeast in a medium bowl. Let stand until frothy and bubbly on surface, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all-purpose flour, spelt flour, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; beat on low speed until combined, about 20 seconds
  3. Make a well in center of flour mixture; pour in buttermilk mixture. Beat on medium speed until batter is smooth and no lumps remain, about 2 minutes. Stir together 2/3 cup warm water and baking soda in a small bowl. Reduce mixer speed to medium-low; gradually beat in warm water mixture until batter is smooth and slightly thicker than buttermilk, about 30 seconds. If needed, add up to 2 additional tablespoons warm water, 1/2 tablespoons at a time, to thin batter to proper consistency. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap, and let stand at room temperature until surface is very bubbly and batter has doubled in volume, about 45 minutes.
  4. Heat a well-seasoned 12-inch cast-iron skillet over low. Brush skillet with 2 teaspoons oil; coat insides of 4 (3 1/8-inch) crumpet rings with cooking spray, and place in skillet. Let rings preheat until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully spoon about 1/3 cup batter into each ring, filling each ring halfway. Cook, undisturbed, until surface is covered in large holes and batter looks dry and slightly set around edges, about 8 minutes. Using tongs, carefully lift ring molds to remove. Using a small spatula, gently flip crumpets. Cook until bottoms are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Transfer crumpets to a wire rack. Repeat process 2 times using remaining oil and batter, re-greasing and preheating rings between batches. Serve crumpets hot with desired toppings.
