English Crumpets


  • 1 quart of warm milk
  • 1/2 cup of yeast
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • flour
  • 1/2 cupful of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoonful of soda


Warm milk, yeast, salt, flour enough to make a stiff batter; when light, add melted butter, soda dissolved in a little water and a very little more flour; let it stand twenty minutes or until light. Grease some muffin-rings, place them on a hot griddle and fill them half full of the batter; when done on one side turn and bake the other side. Butted them while hot; pile one on another and serve immediately.
