milk

225

g

flour

7

dry yeast

5

Preparation method

  • Dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water and let it stand for ten minutes to activate the yeast.
  • Stir the yeast mixture and the milk through the flour to create a smooth batter.
  • Cover with cling film and set aside to rest for one hour in a warm place in the kitchen.
  • After the first rise, stir the baking soda through the batter.
  • Cover the batter and set aside to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Grease a small cake ring with butter.
  • Put the ring in a frying pan and heat up gently. The ring is hot enough when the butter inside starts to melt.
  • Pour a little of the batter inside the ring.
  • Fry gently on low heat.
  • Turn the crumpet when the batter at the top is dry.
  • Bake gently on the other side until a lovely golden brown.
  • Serve hot.
