Vegan crumpets

A British classic – tea and crumpets. These are easy to make and have more flavour than shop bought crumpets. 
They can either be served immediately, or made in advance and reheated in a toaster.
Makes 12

Ingredients:

  • 325ml soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon bread yeast
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 200g white bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Olive oil

Method:

Mix the milk, yeast & sugar in a large jug or bowl. Leave for 10-15 minutes, until it looks bubbly on top.

Sift in the flour, salt & baking powder and mix well. Cover with a wet cloth or teatowel and leave to prove for about an hour. It should increase in size.

Put a couple of crumpet rings into a frying pan, and add a small drop of oil to each, spreading it around the rings.

Heat the oil on a medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of batter to each ring, once the oil is hot. Cook for around 5 minutes, until the top is full of tiny air bubbles. 

Carefully remove the hot ring, flip and fry for a further few minutes, until golden in colour and cooked through.

Re-oil the rings for each crumpet made, to avoid the crumpets sticking.
