Crumpets are so delicious when they are home-made! If you were in England, you can order those delicious delights in local cafes and restaurants.

Of course you can easily buy frozen crumpets from the store, but to make them in your own kitchen is a splendid delight!

Crumpets for Your Afternoon Tea

Crumpets for Your Afternoon Tea


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp rapid rise yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter (melted and slightly cooled, for greasing forms and pan)


  1. Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl or food processor with flat/dough paddle; mix on low speed for 30 seconds or mix ingredients by hand.
  2. Heat milk and 3/4 cup water to very warm. Add to flour mixture. Beat on medium speed for 5 minutes. Cover and let dough rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until dough has doubled and very bubbly.
  3. Stir together 2 tablespoons water and baking soda, mix gently into the batter. Cover and let rise for another 30 minutes. I usually skip the 2nd time rising of the dough.
  4. Brush some of the melted and cooled butter on a griddle, and heat the griddle over low heat for a couple of minutes.
  5. Brush crumpet rings or metal shapes with the butter. Place them on the griddle and heat for 2 minutes. Pour batter into each ring or shape filling 1/3 of the form. Cook for about 8 minutes until the tops are set and full of holes. Remove the rings or shapes with tongs, turn and cook for 2 or 3 minutes until pale golden.
  6. Cool crumpets on a wire rack or if your impatient crowd is waiting for these yummies – serve immediately!
  7. Grease the griddle and crumpet rings or forms again. Repeat as for first batch.
  8. Serve as you like it – with melted butter, jam, or your flavored home-made butter. I'll show you how to make it!
