Toaster Biscuits

Rated as 3.27 out of 5 Stars

"Australian Toaster Biscuits are very similar to English crumpets. They are cooked inside metal rings on the top of a griddle. If you don't have crumpet rings you can make them out of aluminum foil. There are directions below."

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. To make crumpet rings, cut aluminum foil into 7x12 inch pieces. Fold in half lengthwise and then in thirds, making 6 layers. Form into a 3 1/2 inch diameter circle and tape shut on the outside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour and salt. Stir in the milk, oil and yeast mixture. Beat well until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 60 minutes. Lightly grease or butter the inside of the crumpet rings and dip the rings in cornmeal.
  3. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium low heat. Sprinkle cornmeal on the griddle and place the rings on the griddle. Deflate the batter by stirring. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into each ring. Cook slowly for about 10 minutes or until pale brown. Carefully remove the rings and turn the biscuits over. Bake on second side about 8 minutes or until light brown. Transfer to a rack to cool.

As a fan of crumpets, I was eager to try a new recipe. Compared to some of my favorites, I found these a little salty and the batter thicker and more difficult to manage.

Too salty and did you know that there is no such thing as an Australian Toaster Biscuit in Australia? Stick with traditional crumpets - far more authentic and available in Australia.

Tried it a couple times but it did not turn out the way I hoped it would. The texture is a bit like cake which in fact I think it should be a bit more chewy. The taste was good but the texture i...

Let me start off by saying that normally, I never review a recipe unless I try it unchanged. So one cannot consider this a negative, nor even a neutral review, because I changed it from the beg...

Yum.. kind of a cross between a biscuit and a muffin. A friend gave me some fresh rosemary from his yard today so I added some of that..

very tasty, and pretty easy, and i really don't bake that often. i agree that they are a little salty. i love that the inside is like a muffin. yum!!

This recipe could have used a little more liquid. The batter I ended up with was very thick and hard to pour into the crumpet rings.
