This is an American rendition of a British classic. Serve with your choice of savory or sweet toppings, like fruit spread and butter, double Devonshire cream, clotted cream, etc... I love using crumpets as a base for eggs Benedict. If you have an Instant Pot® you can use the yogurt setting and proof the dough much faster!

Instructions Checklist
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat buttermilk and 1/2 cup milk to about 100 degrees F (37 degrees C). Sprinkle yeast and sugar over milk mixture, stirring once. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 10 minutes.

  • Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Add yeast mixture and stir to combine, forming a soft dough. Cover and place in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled in size.

  • Combine remaining 1/2 cup milk and baking soda in a small bowl. Stir mixture into dough until incorporated. Cover and leave for 30 minutes in a warm place.

  • Heat a cast iron pan or griddle over low heat. Spray metal crumpet rings and place into middle of frying pan. Fill each ring with 1/2 cup of crumpet mixture. Cook for 4 or 5 minutes until bubbles appear and the edges are starting to set. Remove from ring and cook the top for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

Was leery about trying it. No reviews. However I LOVE Crumpets! Sooo...I waited for my crumpet rings to arrive. Well let me tell you Super simple and absolutely delicious. Just have to let rise 40 mins. then 30 min. I made them exactly as the recipe stated. I think I overfilled a couple of rings could have been made smaller....I made 6 out of the recipe probably could get 8 less fat ones.:-) will be a staple around here! Read More

Great recipe! Heres for Instant pot proofing! From: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-bake-proof-bread-in-an-instant-pot/ "To proof bread: Place the bread on parchment paper. Put the steamer rack into the inner pot the normal way. Secure the lid. Turn the valve to Venting. Use the Yogurt button in Low mode to keep the dough just warm enough to rise. This process took my Instant Pot 24 minutes to fully double my yeast dough. When it's done it will look bubbly and sticky. That's natural. Knead the dough and either re-rise it according to the recipe or transfer it to your cooking pan for baking in the oven. " Read More

These were ALMOST as perfect as the real ones I've been missing from Australia! I will make them again. I wish there was a recipe for these using the Instant Pot. Read More
