• 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm milk (scalded, then cooled)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in medium-size bowl.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients; beat until smooth.
  3. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, 40 to 60 minutes.
  4. Grease griddle or heavy skillet and insides of 4 to 6 (3-inch) flan rings or crumpet rings.* Place rings on griddle over medium heat until hot.
  5. Pour about 2 tablespoons batter into each ring. Cook until tops form bubbles and bottoms are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Remove rings; turn crumpets to brown other side, 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing insides of rings each time.
  8. Serve with butter and jam or marmalade.

Makes 12.

* 6 1/2-ounce tuna, minced clam or shrimp cans, tops and bottoms removed, can be substituted for the flan rings.
