Scottish Recipes: Crumpets
These are soft pancake-like fare but made larger and more thinly than pancakes. They can be spread with butter and/or jam and they are traditionally rolled up before eating. The quantities below will make about 16 crumpets
Recipe Ingredients:8 oz plain flour (2 cups all purpose flour)
2 tablespoons caster sugar/fine granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs, separated into whites and yolks
2 tablespoons melted butter
15 oz milk- a pint in the US is 16 fluid oz ; a UK pint is 20 fluid oz
Note: American tablespoons hold 14.2ml compared to UK 17.7ml
Preparation Method:Beat the egg yolks and blend in the sifted flour, sugar, salt. Then add in the melted butter and milk to make a thin batter about the consistency of thin cream. Beat the egg whites to the soft peak stage and quickly add to the batter, folding with a knife or metal spoon.
Heat a lightly greased gridle or a frying pan and pour in large spoonfuls of the batter. Each crumpet should spread thinly to about 4/5" in diameter and you may have to roll the pan to achieve this. When the batter is brown underneath and slightly bubbly on top, turn and cook on the other side. Keep them warm by stacking on a clean tea towel and eat soon after.
