  • 2
    large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 125
  • 250
  • 30
    butter or oil, melted
  • 500
    cake flour

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.
