  • 1 cup cake wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or oil plus a little extra butter to grease the pan
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup milk


  • Sift all the dry ingredients and set aside. Beat the egg and combine it with the melted butter or oil and buttermilk/milk
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until it forms a smooth batter. I use a whisk to ensure there are no lumps. Add more milk if you feel the batter is too thick
  • Pour about a quarter cup of batter on a greased pan and cook. Once little bubbles form on the surface, flip it over and cook the other side
  • Serve with whipped cream and maple syrup


  1. You may need a little more milk for the batter. However, ensure that your batter is not too runny or it will be difficult to keep the shape
  2. You can make them egg free by replacing the egg with some lemon juice or vinegar. The texture may not be exactly the same but close enough
  3. The batter does thicken a little on standing so if it's too runny allow it to stand for 5 minutes
  4. You can use some buttermilk if you wish, however the milk works perfectly fine
  5. These crumpets are perfect with jam too
