Sourdough Crumpets. Place the starter in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in the sugar and salt, then the baking soda. The batter should rise up and bubble a bit, becoming almost billowy.
Enjoy them warm, fresh off the griddle. Grease a skillet and heat over medium-low burner. About the same heat you use for pancakes. You can have Sourdough Crumpets using 3 ingredients and 4 steps. Here is how you cook it.
Ingredients of Sourdough Crumpets
- You need 100 g of starter.
- Prepare 1 tsp of baking powder.
- You need 1 tsp of salt.
They're even easier to make than regular crumpets as the sourdough discard is already a perfect crumpet batter. Just add a little leavening and soon you'll be eating the lightest, holiest crumpets. These are never fail sourdough crumpets with lots of holes to soak up butter. Place the rings (four rings just fit nicely) in the pan and give a few minutes to heat up.
Sourdough Crumpets instructions
- If you've just fed your starter, mix everything together and leave it for a few hours. If you fed your starter a few hours ago, mix it with the baking powder and salt and cook it straight away..
- The consistency of your mixture determines the crumpetyness of your Cruffins. A more liquid (ie. batter-like) mixture will produce something more like a crumpet, while a thicker mixture (but not quite thick enough to be called a dough) will produce something towards the muffin end of the spectrum. So adjust the consistency of your mixture with water or flour to get the desired consistency..
- Heat a frying pan (medium heat) and muffin/egg rings. If you are going for something more muffiny, the batter will be thicker so you don't need the rings unless you want perfect round shapes..
- Spoon/pour in the batter. Don't fill the rings completely – the crumpets will grow! Cook until the bubbles come out the top and the top dries out, about 3-4 minutes (the one in the picture is half dry, so needs a little more). If your bottoms burn before this happens, then next time try reducing the temperature or adding less batter. You can then flip and cook for a minute or so on top. Or if you really want to preserve your bubble holes, you can grill them in the oven for a min or two..
Pour batter from the jug to half fill the rings. These Easy Three Ingredient Sourdough Crumpets are exactly that, easy to make and even easier to eat! They really do have only three main ingredients in them, namely sourdough starter or sourdough discard, plain (all purpose) flour and baking powder. In a medium bowl, combine the sourdough starter, flour, water, salt and baking powder. Mix really well to combine into a smooth batter.
