English Crumpets

by therecipebank


1lb / 450 g strong plain flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
7g / 2 teaspoons fast-rising active dry yeast 
1/2 pint / 300 ml warm milk 
1/2 pint / 300 ml warm water 
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
vegetable oil

4 pastry cutters of approx the same size

Put the flour and salt in a large bowl and stir in the sugar and yeast. Pour in the warm milk and water and mix well it should look like a thick batter. Then cover with a tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for one hour until the texture is light and fluffy.

Stir to knock out the air then add the bicarbonate of soda and mix well. Allow this mixture to stand for 30 minutes or place in the fridge (covered) overnight ready for the morning.

Grease the 4 pastry cutters and a large frying pan, place the pastry cutters in the pan and wait for it to warm up.

Pour a little mixture (1 tablespoon approx) into each ring and leave cooking until lots of small holes have appeared on the top, this should take around 10 minutes.

Flip the ring over, push out the crumpet and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side.

Serve HOT with butter and jam.

These do take a while to cook but are so worth the effort, better if you have two pans and 8 cutters if you have a big family to feed!

Chocolate Granola

by therecipebank

3 cups rolled oats
½ cup raw almonds, chopped
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
6 Tbsp. mild honey
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
½ cup, or more, finely chopped plain dark chocolate

Preheat the oven to 150°C / 300°F.

In a large bowl, mix together

the oats, almonds, coconut, sugar, and salt.

In a small saucepan, stir the honey and oil over low heat until melted. Pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to combine well.

Spread the mixture on a baking tray. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until golden. Remove from the oven a stir well, then leave to cool.

When cool transfer to a storage container, add the chocolate and shake well to mix.

This recipe also works well without the chocolate but with cranberries and yogurt.
