CRUMPET - NOT PAN CAKE

Crumpet s are pan fried English muffin like tea time bread. These crumpets look like pan cakes but recipe is different and the texture too. Crumpets have a little chewy and spongy texture with many holes on top and a flat top.Crumpets are generally eaten hot with butter, marmalade,peanut butter or with cheese melted on top.There is difference between English muffins and crumpets.English muffins are baked and eaten as a break fast,Crumpets are pan fried and served at tea time.There is a difference between pan cake and crumpet, pan cakes are made with flour, eggs, baking powder and crumpets are made with flour,milk and yeast

For this crumpets you need 1 inch deep.3 &1/2 inch round crumpet rings if you don't have this rings can use scone or pastry cutters. I don't have both of them so i didn't get the shape, but the texture and taste of my crumpets are same I think:)

5. Pour the batter in to the rings till 3/4 of the ring cook in a very low heat for 5 minutes by the time you can see the holes on top of the crumpets and the dough appears dry.

6. Remove the ring slowely, turn the crumpet over and cook for few seconds to drown the top and remove from heat and cool on a rack.
Make sure thet your heat should be very slow other wise the bottom of the crumpet will turn in to dark
Generally crumpets are soft and nice golden brown color base and characteristic holes all over the surface.
So be care full with the heat.
Enjoy the crumpets with tea...
