It takes just 2 ingredients to make Sourdough Crumpets; a well fed starter and bicarbonate soda.
bicarbonate soda, sourdough starter
well fed and active
Lightly brush a frying pan and 4 crumpet rings with oil.
Place the pan and crumpet rings over a low heat.
Mix the sourdough starter and bicarbonate soda together and let it begin to bubble.
Spoon the batter into the crumpet rings and cook on low for 5 minutes until bubbles are forming on the top of the crumpets and the sides start to pull away from the edge of the rings.
Remove the crumpet rings and carefully flip them over to cook the tops of the pancakes for another 3-5 minutes.
Serve immediately with a spread of your choice.
The starter I use is made of equal weights of organic rye flour and water. If your starter is less than 100% hydration you may need to adjust the levels of moisture or bicarbonate soda in this recipe.
