Home Made Crumpets recipes  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.  I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.  My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they cant cook, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.

 

 

 

 

 

225g  plain white flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp sugar
325ml  semi-skimmed milk

Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk. Slowly incorporate the flour into the liquid, using a wooden spoon. Mix it well to make a smooth, thick batter.

Cover the bowl with a tea-towel for about 45 minutes  grease a  frying pan with a tiny amount of butter or oil. You just want to grease the pan, not use the butter to fry your crumpets.

Put your pan over a medium flame to heat up. When the pan is good and hot, drop tablespoons of the batter into it. The homemade crumpets will take a few minutes to cook on the first side. You know they are ready as the bubbles, which come to the surface all start to explode leaving proper crumpet holes. Turn them over and cook for barely a minute on the other side.
