The crumpet is a classic household breakfast, best enjoyed with a cup of tea and the morning’s paper. Australian foodie, recipe developer, cookbook author and blogger Katrina Meynink knows her way around a crumpet. Not only does she love to eat them, but she’s a pro at whipping up a fresh batch of crumpets at home too. We asked this avid food-lover for her top crumpet-making tips, and here’s what she told us:

1. It’s all in the flour

I opt for a 50:50 mixture of strong and plain flour, so you achieve the gorgeous labyrinth of honeycomb holes with a centre that is still soft enough to yield to its topping.

2. Raising agents are a must

Yeast, baking powder, bicarbonate soda. These are completely non-negotiable elements.

3. Get seasoning

Yes, despite the toppings that will grace your crumpets once they’re fully formed, a good balance of salt and sugar is essential to your delicious batch.

4. The heat is on

Patience is required; for best results you’ll need to cook over a low heat until small holes appear and the top has started to dry, then gently flip and finish them off in the oven.
