I tried these today and they come up very well I just used large egg rings and if you hold them down with a set of tongs when you pour your batter in it goes okay.

Crumpets
Crumpets are soft cakes made of a yeast mixture which are baked on a griddle in special metal rings. The underneath of a crumpet is smooth and brown and the top is full of small holes.
Ingredients
350 Gram Strong plain flour (12 oz)
15 Gram Fresh yeast, or 7g ( 1/4 oz) fast-action dried ( 1/2 oz)
300 ml Tepid water ( 1/2 pint)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
225 ml Milk (8 fl oz)
Vegetable oil
Method
Makes 24

Sift 175g (6 oz) flour into a mixing bowl and crumble in the fresh yeast or sprinkle in the fast-action dried yeast granules. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the water. Gradually mix together until smooth, beating well as the flour is worked into the liquid. Cover and leave to stand in a warm place for about 15 minutes until frothy.

Meanwhile, sift the remaining flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl, make a well in the centre, then pour in the yeast mixture and the milk. Mix to give a thick batter consistency. Using a wooden spoon, vigorously beat the batter for 5 minutes to incorporate air. Cover and leave in a warm place for about 1 hour, until sponge like in texture. Beat the batter for a further 2 minutes.

Place a large, preferably non-stick frying pan on to a high heat and, using absorbent kitchen paper, rub a little oil over the surface. Grease the insides of 3 crumpet rings or three 8 cm (3 inch) plain metal pastry cutters. Place the rings blunt edge down on to the hot surface and leave for about 2 minutes, or until very hot. Pour the batter into a large measuring jug. Pour a little batter into each ring to a depth of 1 cm ( 1/2 inch). Cook the crumpets for 5-7 minutes until the surface of each appears dry and is honeycombed with holes.

When the batter has set, carefully remove each metal ring. Flip the crumpet over and cook the second side for 1 minute only. Cool on a wire rack. Continue cooking the crumpets until all the batter is used. It is important that the frying pan and metal rings are well oiled each time, and heated before the batter is poured in. When required, toast the crumpets on both sides and serve hot with butter.

tut tut tut why I am not surprised at your answers, the only surprise I got was that when I opened the thread there was a real recipe.

I hope you can get to take a picture swinno as I have heard that fresh crumpet tastes really good.   Wink
