Ingredients (makes ~16 crumpets)

  • 110g Wholemeal Flour
  • 110g medium oatmeal
  • 110g farine de ble noir (french buckwheat flour)
  • 5g dried yeast
  • 6g salt
  • 250ml warm water
  • 250ml whole milk
  • Ghee for cooking

How to make them

1) Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl then add the water and milk, mix well with a whisk then cover and leave for a couple of hours.

2) When the batter is bubbling away heat up a large flat pan (I used our crepe machine which is one of the best bits of kitchen kit we own!) and place the crumpet rings onto the pan to warm up.

3) Put a blob of ghee (or oil) into each ring and spoon the batter in so that it is about 1cm deep.

4) Once the tops have started to set around the edges remove the rings and flip the crumpets over, if you have space you could begin filling the crumpet rings again for the next batch.

5) When the crumpets are golden brown on both sides remove them from the pan and either eat immediately or cool on a cooling rack for toasting later on.

6) eat and enjoy!


The recipe is roughly based on the ‘staffordshire oatcakes’ recipe from the river cottage bread book but I did quite a bit of reading about them on the shipton mill website and in Elizabeth David’s ‘English Bread and Yeast Cookery‘ book.

This sounds an interesting recipe that I would like to try. However my son avoids eating wheat. Any thoughts on whether it would be possible to eliminate the wholemeal flour
