Sourdough Crumpets

I work full time and have split days off, so I make the most of every minute. I usually split some of my  time between the Art room & kitchen. Never in a Mall.

Last week my favorite oven went south, and the part for it will probably be  another week.  To make things worst, it happened the day I had made a giant batch of sourdough pizza dough, and more starter for Scones.

The oven died in the middle of making  pizza, and of course it was a Holiday weekend.  No biggie; it will get fixed eventually… If everything in life was perfect, it would be boring .We all need to deal with lives ups & down,. It builds character and teaches us how to overcome things, and find ways to deal with it.

Texas has been very rainy, hot & humid, and the last thing I wanted to do was turn on my big oven and heat the house up.

I searched for recipes that didn’t use the oven and found this recipe from ” foodequalshappyme “, I believe it was on Pinterest.

I have a large pancake griddle, muffin rings and yes LOTS of sourdough. I just made a tiny batch to see if I’d like it. It was  easy & tasty, and so much faster then making pancakes, waffles, or bread. My husband was impressed and  wants me to make lots more so we can freeze them

Sourdough Crumpets

1 cup room temp sourdough

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Just whisk together, and make sure  you use a 3 cup or larger mixing cup or bowl because the baking soda starts bubbling and it GROWS. Heat skillet to 325-350, depending on how full you make them. Grab some muffin rings, butter them or spray with nonstick spray. I used coconut spray and had no problem getting them off. And yes I was worried about that part; No problem!

Since I didn’t have a clue and filled them 3/4 up, I turned the heat down from 350 to 325,  so the bottoms wouldn’t burn . I also tented my griddle with aluminum foil to help it along, pulling it up every so often to check my bubbles. When the bubbles all pop and the tops looks dull and almost set I touched one to see if it was still wet. Nothing stuck on my finger so I was good to remove rings and flip. I think it made have taken 5 minutes, but it will depend on the size of your rings and how full you filled it. Once it is flipped, you are only cooking it maybe a couple of minutes to brown the other side. Taking the rings off was easy, but that are hot so be careful. I have iron hands so I just grabbed each ring, and lifted it off and flipped.

I will definitely make these again but will adIMG_1076 2d savory or sweet additions to them.
