English Crumpets

I was introduced to crumpets when first time I went to London in 2017. I love the texture and it’s so easy to just toast it and add in butter. Sadly, it is not available here in Stuttgart. Now that I can’t go to London often, that means, time for homemade crumpets. It’s my first trial making this crumpets, I thought I would fail, but well, it turned out just fine. I can definitely make it better, but for now, here is the first version of my crumpets…. J

1 tsp                salt

1 tsp                sugar

1 cup               warm milk

1 tbsp              dried yeast

DIRECTION

  • Stir dried yeast in the warm milk, leave it for 10 minutes until the yeast is activated._DSC1686.JPG_DSC1687.JPG
  • Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl._DSC1688.JPG
  • Pour the warm milk mixture into the flour mixture. Use hand or hand mixer to mix it._DSC1691.JPG
  • Cover the dough with towel or plastic wrap. Keep the dough in a warm place for about 1 hour or in the oven with 50 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. It will double the size, if not, as long as it becomes bigger than before, you should be in a good place._DSC1693.JPG
  • Mix the baking soda and water together. Pour it into the dough, mix it well.
  • Cover the dough, keep the tough in a warm place for another 30 minutes. The consistency of the dough should be somewhat watery and slimy.DSC01823.JPG
  • Pre-heat a non-sticky pan on a medium heat. Spray the crumpet rings and the pan with vegetable oil or use kitchen towel if you don’t have the spray.
  • Pour about ¼ cup of dough into the ring, wait until it’s bubbly and cooked on top. You can take the ring out and flip the crumpets.DSC01829.JPG
  • Enjoy the crumpets with butter, honey, or peanut butter._DSC1729.JPG

Hello there! If you are stopping by this page, you are probably searching for easy Asian home-cook meal inspirations that are uncomplicated, quick, budget-friendly, and still tasty and delishhh….. That’s what I am going to share in this blog. I am not a chef, I cook because I love it and I enjoy it. To give you a little background of who I am…. My name is Dewi, a self-made home-cook who enjoys filling her kitchen in with tasty and delicious of Asian food. I was born and grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia where I have never learned how to cook (except frying an egg or two, add soy sauce, and eat it with rice) and never thought I would have to cook ever in my life. Because my mom, who was (still is) the “family chef” had never encouraged the children to be involved in the kitchen. So, my passion for food and cooking came later on when I went abroad. In 2006, I moved to Beijing, China where I lived for a good 9 years. I occasionally cooked as I preferred to eat out or to order in, for a simple reason, it’s convenient and affordable (back then). My cooking journey became more apparent in 2015 when I decided to move to Germany. Eating out, especially for Asian food is expensive and not authentic. The selection of Asian restaurants is limited and because of the high price, it would mean that I would have to burn a hole in my pocket if I want to do it often. So now that I have a small family (my husband, my son, and I), I cook not only for myself but also for them. I like to try new things like occasional baking or non-Asian food. For that being said, I want to share my cooking journey with you and hope that you can find new food inspirations that you can do yourself at home, either for yourself or your family, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Happy cooking! =) Xoxo Dewi
