A very exciting thing happened this morning. We made crumpets from scratch! I’ve always loved crumpets and have daydreamed about making them myself for years, but I’m not the greatest cook so have always been a bit scared to give it a go. I recently decided it was time to face my fears!
Crumpets need time to rise, and I didn’t want to have to wait around for them in the morning, so I knocked most of the ingredients together last night and left the batter in the fridge overnight. This morning when we got up I threw the last couple of ingredients in and whisked it all together, then Katie cooked the crumpets in egg rings while I made cups of our favourite coffee. Lattes are a little day off tradition in our house.
It turns out I had nothing to be worried about. Crumpets are easy to make! We used this recipe and they were pretty darn good, though we might tweak it a tiny bit next time. The batter also made a lot of crumpets, but that was quite handy because we were able to pop some in the freezer for quick breakfasts during the week.
I’m so glad we finally made crumpets. Maybe next week we’ll do it again. I’m already looking forward to the next Crumpet Sunday!
Have you tried any new recipes lately? Are there any things you’ve always been a bit scared to make? I’d love to hear about your cooking adventures.
