Quick and easy Crumpets for a lazy start to a public holiday that I got here
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
You will need:
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
30ml butter or oil, melted
270g (500ml) cake flour
20ml baking powder
cinnamon sugar or maple syrup and bacon, to serve
Beat together the eggs and sugar until light. Add 125ml milk and the melted butter or oil and stir well.
Sift the flour, baking powder and 2ml salt into a bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture then stir in the remaining milk to make a smooth batter.
Grease a heavy-based frying pan with a little butter. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and turn over once you see bubbles form on the surface of the crumpets. Cook until golden on both sides. Serve hot with cinnamon sugar and accompanied by the yoghurt and fruit medley. Or serve topped with bacon and drizzled with maple syrup.
