Beat together the eggs and sugar until light. Add 125ml milk and the melted butter or oil and stir well.

Sift the flour, baking powder and 2ml salt into a bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture then stir in the remaining milk to make a smooth batter.

Grease a heavy-based frying pan with a little butter. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and turn over once you see bubbles form on the surface of the crumpets. Cook until golden on both sides. Serve hot with cinnamon sugar and accompanied by the yoghurt and fruit medley. Or serve topped with bacon and drizzled with maple syrup.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
