Recipe's preparation

  1. Place a bowl on top of your Thermomix and weigh in the 375 gm of flour then set aside.

    Take around a Tbsp of the flour you just weighed along with the sugar, yeast and 100 gm of milk place into the TM bowl (make sure the yeast isn’t sitting on the blades).

    With the MC in place mix well for 20 seconds/speed 3 then set to mix for 3 minutes / 37°C / speed 2. If your yeast is good, the mixture should be foamy now.

    In a jug mix the remaining cold milk and boiling water and stir to combine.

    Add the remaining flour, milk/water mix, egg and salt To the TM bowl and with the MC in place mix for 10 seconds on speed 6.

    The mixture should resemble a very thick pancake batter now. Add some more tepid water and mix again at speed 6 if necessary. Then mix for 8 minutes at 37°C on speed 1.

    Leave the mixture in the TM bowl with the lid on and MC in place to prove for about 1 hour or until the surface bubbles.

    Sprinkle the bicarb over the surface and gradually increase the speed to beat at the mixture for 2 minutes at speed 5. Then leave it to sit for 5 minutes before you go on so the yeast can work with the bicarb to develop all those little bubbles.

    Butter the egg rings and frypan. Place the rings in the pan and heat for 1-2 minutes.

    Pour batter into each ring 1/4 to 1/2 full depending on how deep your rings are, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the surface has dried and is full of holes. If they’re too deep the little holes don’t have time to rise to the surface before they set (cook off).

    You may need to puncture a few holes but be warned don’t do it too early, or they’ll just fill up again.

    Lift off the rings and turn the crumpets to cook on the other side for a minute or until golden. Transfer to a rack or plate to cool.

    Butter the rings and frypan and repeat process until all batter has been used.

    Serve warm with butter and your favourite topping.

  • I made these last night after traditionally using...

    I made these last night after traditionally using a different recipe. It wasnt a huge success. I added extra liquid to make the mix a bit thinner, but the outcome had more of a pancake texture. I kept adding more liquid and whisking it in before cooking another batch but still found them a bit more cakey than crumpet like. So if you make this, add extra liquid where it suggests if you think it is on the thick side, and cook smaller amounts at a time to test it (I cooked them in my pie maker as I normally would with just less than a third of a cup mix per crumpet as 1/3 cup was too thick and got gluggy cooked.)
