[Food] The perfect crumpet

This morning I have been trying to find the way to achieve the perfect crumpet. The problem I have is that I believe my hob, which is induction, is not really suited for this aim. It appears that I need a decent enough heat to get the rise from the trapped air, but I am thwarted as inevitably I seem to end up with bottoms that are too hot and they burn. If I reduce the heat then I swap burnt bottoms for inconsistently cooked insides which are underdone.

Anyone any ideas?

You’re overthinking it. In the toaster, medium-high heat, butter straight on when red hot. Marmite optional but recommended. Perfect crumpets.

I really was expecting a Stan and Jack style thread, at first. #disappointment

I think you're doing a global whooosh here, no 😏

It's the sort of fiddly thing I don't think I'll ever bother to do from scratch, so I can't offer anything except this episode of food unwrapped. Might be useful, might not!


Thanks! I left mine fermenting at too low a temperature. I was going by another YouTube video. At least I have another option to try.
