Sourdough crumpets

A one time donation to help fund the blog and associated materials



  • 200g sourdough starter
  • 20g bread flour
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • butter


Mix the starter, flour, honey and salt in a large jug or bowl. Cover with a wet cloth or tea towel and leave to prove for about an hour.

Heat some butter on a low heat and, once hot, add the batter to the pan in large spoonfuls, using one spoonful per crumpet.

Cook for around 5 minutes, flip and fry for a further few minutes, until golden in colour and cooked through.
