My local grocery store quit selling crumpets, so I decided to try my hand at making my own! These are a nice alternative to English muffins. To serve, toast the crumpets whole and spread with butter, honey, jelly, or your favorite topping.
Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1 cup of warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix flour, milk powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle. Add the yeast mixture and remaining 1 3/4 cups warm water. Mix well with a wooden spoon until dough is the consistency of cake or waffle batter. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm spot until bubbly, about 1 hour.
Combine 2 tablespoons water and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix into the batter. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Heat a cast iron griddle or nonstick pan over medium heat. Lightly grease the griddle and inside of the crumpet rings with cooking spray. Arrange the rings on the griddle.
Fill crumpet rings 2/3 of the way with batter. Cook until tops are covered in bubbles and starting to look dry, 5 to 8 minutes. Carefully lift up crumpet rings, flip the crumpets, and cook until second side is lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn heat down if crumpet is overly dark or still raw in the middle.

Eating healthy breakfast to start the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me power to make on the morning. The sweetness is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your stomach system and make keep you feeling full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the street food before lunchtime.
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
