English Crumpets

Another great breakfast treat or a great party favor, this recipe sounds a bit tedious, but it's really no more difficult than making homemade pancakes. It just takes an extra half hour because the batter has to rise for a bit. Definitely worth the wait!


1 T. yeast

1 T. sugar

3/4 cup lukewarm water

Mix together:

1 cup milk

3 lightly beaten eggs

3/4 cups melted butter

Mix together in large container:

3 cups flour

1 1/2 t. salt

Make a well in the flour. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Cover. Let double in size. Drop by teaspoons onto hot buttery griddle. Cook 3 minutes, turn and cook 3 more minutes. (they don't take much longer to cook than a pancake.)

Serve with preserves or this tasty spread:

8 oz. cream cheese

1 cup strawberry banana yogourt

1/2 cup strawberry jam

Serve them like hot pancakes or they can be served at a party at room temperature with the spread. Very tasty! Enjoy!
