Sourdough Crumpet

10 MIN
What to make with excess sourdough starter? This sourdough take on the classic English crumpet!



  1. In a bowl, whisk together the starter, sugar, baking soda and salt. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Butter the inside of a 3 ½-inch (9 cm) ring mould (see note). Butter the skillet. Place the ring mould in the skillet. Pour the crumpet mixture into the mould.
  3. Cook for 5 minutes or until bubbles appear at the centre and the sides are starting to cook through.
  4. Pass a thin blade between the mould and the crumpet to loosen. Using kitchen tongs, remove the ring mould. Using a spatula, flip the crumpet over. Cook for 2 minutes or until the crumpet is nicely golden. Delicious with a pat of butter and jam or maple syrup.


If you do not have a ring mould, you can cook the crumpet in a mini egg skillet.

  1. Great, and so simple ! I don't bother with the ring mold. I pour the crumpet mixture directly into my 12cm Le Creuset cast iron pan. If I have lots of sourdough starter leftover and I want to use it all up, I increase the ingredients accordingly, and cook a giant crumpet for sharing in my 20cm Le Creuset pan.
