Whole Wheat Crumpets

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"These are a little like an English muffin, except a bit more dense and cake-like with a hint of sweetness. They are good eaten warm and soft, or you can let them sit out a bit for a more European crusty texture, then slice and toast them. Serve in the manner of biscuits or English muffins. Good for sandwiches, too! Especially good is an egg sandwich made with these."

  1. Stir warm water and honey together in a large bowl. Mix yeast into the warm water and let stand until the yeast begins to bubble, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir flour, salt, baking soda, and milk into yeast mixture. Cover bowl and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an electric griddle to medium-low heat (220 degrees F/105 degrees C) and grease the griddle. Grease the metal rings.
  3. Place the greased rings onto the griddle and allow to warm for 1 to 2 minutes; spoon about 3 tablespoons of batter into each ring. Batter will be elastic and stringy, but will fill out the ring as it cooks. Cook the crumpets until golden brown on the bottom and bubbles form on the top side, 5 to 8 minutes. Increase griddle temperature to 230 degrees F (110 degrees C) and flip the crumpets. Cook until underside is golden brown, 2 to 3 more minutes.
  4. Remove rings from crumpets, grease the rings and griddle again, and turn griddle heat back down to 220 degrees F (105 degrees C). Repeat to make 2 more batches of crumpets.

Easy enough to make but had my trouble with cooking. For me it took much longer than recipe shows. And even when done they were very chewy. I will say the ones I split and toasted were very goo...

Very good, I use these instead of English Muffins, only a few ingredients instead of all the stuff in the store bought ones. They store well in the freezer too!

Had these with soup for dinner.. yumyum. I had fresh rosemary so I added some. I'll make these again and maybe add just a tad more salt

Works fabulously. I will never make pancakes again -- all I want is crumpets!!! Like another reviewer, I used almond milk with great success. The texture of these is incredible. I didn't have ri...

I tried this recipe and a traditional white flour one I found elsewhere on the Internet. This was by far my favorite as it was much more flavorful. We are doing an English Afternoon Tea for 8th ...

These are wonderful and only about 80 calories. A great recipe for those using only whole wheat flour. Especially good if you freshly grind your own wheat berries.
