vegan crumpet recipe

Fear Free Crumpets


Fear Free Crumpets
  • 2 ½ cups of sifted plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of caster sugar
  • 1x7g sachet of dry yeast (2 teaspoons)
  • 300 ml of luke warm non-dairy milk
  • 300 ml of luke warm water
  • ½ teaspoon bicarb soda

    You will need a large non-stick flat frypan or skillet and at least 4 LARGE egg rings - I use one purchased from a restaurant supplier. It is 2.5cm in height & 10cm across and has a handle
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine sifted flour, salt & yeast.
  2. Pour in warm non-dairy milk & warm water & mix into a thick batter until well combined
  3. Cover with cling wrap & sit to one side for an hour – it will rise into a sticky mess!
  4. Using a spoon re-mix the batter to remove any air
  5. Add bicarb of soda and mix well. Re-cover and stand for a further 30 minutes. After 30 minutes mix before using. It will reduce the look of your batter by half. This will make approx. 12 crumpets
  6. Heat your non-stick frypan on low (wait until this is warm before you commence cooking)
  7. Lightly oil your cooking rings & place on warm frypan & allow to warm through
  8. Add two heaped tablespoons (or less if your cooking rings are smaller) & using two knives quickly spread out mixture evenly (Don’t heap it in. The batter swells during the cooking process)
  9. Allow to cook for 10 minutes (check at the 8-9 minute mark)
  10. They are cooked when bubbles start to form & the surface is dry. If the top is a TINY bit damp, don’t worry. Remove from heat & it will harden (Do not be tempted to flip them!)
  11. Great eaten immediately or toasted later. Best kept in the fridge, covered.
