Prep Time
Gluten Free Crumpets



  1. Combine boiling water and cold water in a small bowl. Whisk in yeast and leave to sit for 10 minutes, until frothy.
  2. Sift flour, cornflour, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk in milk, then yeast mixture, until smooth. Cover and leave in a warm place for 2 hours, until mixture has risen slightly and has a few bubbles on top. 
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium. Brush two crumpet rings and the frying pan with a little melted butter. Place trumpet rings in pan. 
  4. Spoon 2 ½ tablespoons mixture into rings and cook for approximately 5 minutes, until bubbles appear and the surface is almost dry. Flip over and cook for a further minute, until crumpets are cooked through. Repeat, brushing crumpet rings and pan with more butter, until mixture is used up. 


  • If you don't have crumpet rings, you can use egg rings or cookie cutters instead.
  • To prevent the bases of the crumpets burning, make sure you don't have the pan on too high a heat.
