Yummy Crumpets
« on: September 02, 2008, 12:59:14 am »
Name of Recipe: Yummy Crumpets
Number of People: Depends on size made & appetite - at least 2 very hungry people (hopefully 8 - 10)
Ingredients:

375g bakers flour
1/2 tsp caster sugar
1 heaped tsp dried yeast
about 300ml tepid milk  (you may need more - see the comments below !!!)
about 200ml tepid water (you may need more - see the comments below !!!)
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
4 egg rings
Oil for greasing


Preparation:

Place 1 Tbsp of the flour, sugar and yeast into TM bowl with 100ml of the milk into the Thermomix bowl. Set to mix for 3 minutes at 37C on speed 2. The mixture should start to become frothy.

Add remaining flour, milk, water, egg and salt. Mix for 10 seconds on speed 7.

The mixture should resemble a thick batter rather than a bread mix. Add some more tepid water and mix again at speed 7 if necessary. Then mix for 8 minutes at 37C on speed 1.

Leave the mixture in the TM bowl to prove for about 1 hour or until the surface bubbles.

Add the bicarb soda and gradually increase the speed to beat at the mixture for 2 minutes at speed 5.

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

Pour batter into each ring and cook for 5 minutes, or until the surface has dried and is full of holes. You may need to puncture a few holes for visual effect if you like. Lift off the rings and turn the crumpets to cook on the other side for a minute or until golden. Transfer to a rack to cool.

Clean and oil rings and frypan and repeat process until all batter has been used.

Serve warm with butter and your favourite topping.

Tips/Hints:

The leftovers (ha ha ha !!) may be frozen with pieces of baking paper between crumpets and toasted as needed.

We had moderate success with these.  The mixture was probably too thick - more like a very soft dough than a thick batter.  We were able to save the day by cutting the crumpets in half and toasting them - very yummy though!

I made these a couple of weeks ago and they were great!!  The kids were a little sceptical about home-made crumpets, but scoffed the lot.  I ate mine with Tenina's Lemon Butter and was very happy!

thanks for the feedback Dean.  I had mixed success with the first batch or two or three, and the amount of milk/water is "liquid" as it seems to vary - maybe with the flour, ambient temp ??  Don't really know what the varianble may be, but now I know what thickness the batter has to be so add more water if needed (start a bit on the thicker side so you can add water).  The first ones were toooo watery and dribbled out under the rings.

Also, started adding bicarb after seeing it in a recipe from UK and this helps increase the number of bubbles.

Usually they go pretty quickly even if not 100% when you put sime butter and honey (or your fav topping). 

Keep experimenting, they will work - pictures are there to prove I did do it  ;)

You are all very clever. I only have 6 more sleeps until my TMX arrives now. I'm getting very inspired by all these delicious looking things you are all making.

Made my first batch of these today, not altogether a success as the batter was far to thick.  Will try more liquid next time.  They tasted great despite looking a bit odd

Thanks Karen - it may well be that the four I used had more moisture - but I have added a note to say that you may need more water and milk.

Thanks for being brave and trying these - they probably looked more like muffins.

Ah can see I have tempted you too strongly :).  I intend to have another go if I can ever pry the thermomix from DD2 who is currently making ice cream and is determined to experiment as much as possible.

I have successfully added more liquid even after proving has finished and it still turned out thicker than I thought it was going to be - you can rescue them lol ;)
