Granny Hazel’s crumpets



  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 75 ml Sugar (you can put much less if you like)
  • 25 ml butter, melted
  • 20 ml baking powder (I put less – 2 teaspoons instead of 4)
  • ½ Tsp of salt
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Beat the eggs and gradually add the sugar. Add half the milk and all the  melted butter to this mixture and stir.
  2. Sift the flour, banking powder and salt and add the egg mixture. Gradually stir in the remaining milk to form a smooth mixture.
  3. Don’t stir after all the ingredients are well mixed. Rest the mixture of 15 mins at least (It can stay overnight in the fridge too but it may need a little milk to thin it back to original texture).
  4. Pour a little into a heavy based, non stick pan (apply a little butter if need be )
  5. The first batch or two are always a disaster.  Only turn when bubbles have formed on the top.
  6. You will get the hang of it. These can be made ahead and served hot or cold with syrup, jam or fruit and cream of course!
