• Sourdough Crumpets

    Sourdough Crumpets


    • 200g white sourdough starter
    • 3g sea salt
    • 10g caster sugar
    • 3g bicarbonate of soda
    • Oil or butter for greasing the crumpet rings



    1. Mix the starter, sugar and salt together in a bowl.
    2. Meanwhile preheat a frying pan on a medium heat and grease the crumpet rings ready.
    3. Lastly add the bicarbonate of soda and mix well.
    4. Drop a little butter into the bottom of the rings in the pan.
    5. As soon as you can, divide the mixture between the crumpet rings. Fill the rings halfway, no more, as they will expand as they cook.
    6. As soon as the mixture has set around the top, remove the rings and then flip over to toast on the other side.
    7. Keep an eye on the bottoms so they don’t burn!
    8. Serve just with butter and jam, or why not try them on Christmas morning with our beetroot cured salmon, pickled cucumber and horseradish cream?
