Crumpets

I want to post this recipe especially for one chess player….Earl… he said that he hasn’t eaten crumpets and wants to know more…so..here’s some work to catch-up on!…Earl!

Ingredients: 350 g plain flour
1 level teaspoon salt
5ml baking powder
300 ml milk
sunflower, oil for frying and greasing
cooking rings or crumpet rings

How to: Tip the flour into a bowl and stir in the salt and baking powder. Add the milk. (I usually like to add 1 egg too….it’s up to you if you want!) Beat the mixture well for about 5 minutes with a wooden spoon. The mixture should be quite liquid and of a spoonable consistency. Grease the cooking or crumpet rings with sunflower oil and smear a light covering of oil over the base of a solid frying pan. Place the rings on the base of the pan and heat. When hot, spoon in the batter to about half-fill the rings. Cook the mixture over a gentle to moderate heat for about 4-8 minutes. Remove the rings and turn the crumpets over. Cook for about 2-3 minutes until lightly golden.
Serve the crumpets hot with melted butter+honey/syrup. Enjoy!

This page comes from the Woman’s Weekly, 28th August 2007. (UK magazine) It all looks delicious!! Hubby bought the mag for me…perhaps thought it was high time I read a woman’s mag for a change…and not playing chess…hahaha….he also bought me “The People’s Friend” (The Famouse Story Magasine”…wonder why…although there are some good articles in it…one about Willie Shand…whoever he is! ….lol and…there is a page about Gloucester Cathedral too…really good reading stuff…he knows I like to read stories…perhaps that’s why he’s bought the “story magazine”……anyway…thought to share the recipes!! I’m going to try the “Mille Feuille Slices”…not today….perhaps the weekend…I like baking, but I must be in the “mood” ….did it a zillion times when at secondary school, but don’t do it as much as I did it when at school. I can remember, we went to the movies, I was in Standerd 9…now…that was in the OLD South Africa…now it is Grade 11! Not 11th Grade…like the Americans say…we do it always the other way around in South Africa….hahaha….just to prove we are “different”…but anyway…we came back that Friday night, I baked a chocolate cake AND we finished it about an hour later…!! My first pudding was when I was 10, never heard of “method”…started reading and as far as I go, mixed everything! I got the best compliments for my Vinegar pudding…and it was really nice, must say myself…and from there, every Sunday….everybody wanted that pudding!! And….then I discovered the “method” bit…and it wasn’t the same again….so…ignore the method bit and mix! haha..
