Cinnamon Sugar Crumpets

Cinnamon Sugar Crumpets

I love trying new things. There has been much talk of crumpets over on the PPK forums, so this morning I did some research, threw a batter together, bought some cooking rings while it was rising and made crumpets like there was no tomorrow.

Crumpets are like a cross between a muffin and injera (a spongy, Ethiopian pancake that’s covered in tiny holes). They spend the majority of the time cooking slowly on one side, and the batter is contained within rings until it’s set. The yeast produces bubbles in the dough that make little holes when they escape, giving crumpets their characteristic look and texture.

I sprinkled these with cinnamon and sugar and put them under the broiler for a couple minutes; it was such a lovely breakfast! You can also eat them toasted with earth balance and jam. A special thanks to Amanda for the amazing jams she gave me!

Crumpets with Jam

You’ll have to wait until the cookbook comes out for the recipe. Rest assured that my testers have pledged to try it out and make sure that it’ll be worth waiting for! If you want to try something similar, head over to Cherie’s to take a look at her fantastic English Muffins. While the end result is different, the process is similar!
