Our lovely friend Joan sent the recipe, and Lady M set to work at once.
The mixture bubbled (as it should), and after a couple of hours was set to cook in some (improvised) Crumpet rings.
They took longer to cook than suggested, but that was probably on account of Lady M's fear of too high a temperature.
And here is the very first of her finished products; slathered with butter.
Verdict: 9/10. Very slightly under salted, but otherwise just as they should be. We will certainly be making Crumpets again; in fact I shall buy a set of special rings.
Thanks Joan. Well done Lady M.
