In response to a request from Jo at the West Country Deli, I tried to make some crumpets last week, but without a lot of success. I used Wholemeal flour in an attempt to make them a bit different. They tasted OK but were a little overdone for popular taste, so I've been working to correct the problem. I think my cast iron sheet is a little bit fierce, and the heat source a bit random, but we are getting there. There's probably an issue with the batter mix as well, using Wholemeal flour instead of refined White, maybe they were too thick, the list of possible faults is quite long.
I also tried using a cast iron frying pan, but again the results were mixed.
So back to basics, and a return to white crumpets for my next attempt.
One success is the Sourdough Muffins, Yvonne is using them as part of her medication, spread with Jam.
and I'm now going to try some flavoured with chopped dates.
I also need to make a wholemeal loaf for myself.
So after the usual 5.15 start, and a lot of messing around, I had produced the following,
Sourdough Date Muffins,
A Wholemeal Loaf.
Not a bad mornings work.
I've seen the new Millie and Me menu, and I'm mentioned as a supplier of panini rolls, which is wonderful.
