Sunday Crumpets


Sunday mornings are hands down the laziest mornings of the week, and there is simply no better way to start them than with some super strong, warming coffee and a bellyful of scrumptious crumpets. This recipe is quick to whip up, and fun to eat, as you can mix up toppings and create as many as you like. I normally have mine with some freshly whipped cream, blueberries, strawberries and some golden syrup strewn across the top. The addition of the fruit takes a bit of the guilt out of the carb fest that is a stack of crumpets – but hey – it’s Sunday.


Serves 2 piggy’s or 4 normal’s                   Takes approx 30 mins

245g Plain flour, sieved
1 tbsp Baking Powder, sieved
1 pinch of Salt
1 tbsp Cinnamon Sugar/Regular Sugar (depending how sweet you like it)
2 large Eggs, beaten lightly
20g Butter, melted then cooled
1 tsp Vanilla essence or the paste from 1 Vanilla pod
350ml Milk
125ml Fresh Cream, whipped


Melt the butter in a pan, and decant. Let it cool.

If you don’t have a food processor, or blender, then make a little well in the middle of the sieved dry ingredients – flour/baking powder/salt & sugar and pour in the liquid ingredients – the milk, eggs and melted butter. Incorporate all ingredients really well until smooth, and you are ready to go. If you do have a processor, tip all ingredients in and blitz for about a minute, until it is of a slow-running consistency.

Heat a large frying pan and grease with a bit of butter. Once the pan is heated up, turn the heat to medium and begin cooking the batter by spooning/pouring it into the pan. Make them any size you wish, but I normally stick to about 10cm x 10cm, so they are about 3 mouthfuls per crumpet.

After about 3 minutes, the batter begins to bubble on the uncooked side and they are ready to flip. Cook them now for 1.5 minutes on the flip side, and they should be ready to serve!

    You should Shelley! I had a batch demanded of me this weekend (guess from who :)) – but they ended up being so quick – it wasn’t even an effort really! Polished off in 5 minutes flat :)
