CRUMPETS WITH STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM
1 Cup of flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 table spoons Sugar
380 ml milk

DOUBLE THE RECIPE
2 cups cake flour
4 teaspoom baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 tableapoon sugar
2 ½ cups milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
Beat the eggs and sugar together and add the butter and half the milk.
Mix the dry ingredients and sift into the egg mixture and mix properly.
Add the rest of the milk and beat until smooth.
Heat oil in a pan and scoop 1 table spoon of the dough into the pan. You want them to be small ( less than 5 cm ) reduce the heat. You want them golden brown.
When air bubbles appear then you know it’s ready to be turned.
This mix will give you about 20 small crumpets. Which is ample for 4 servings.
Thinly sliced Strawberries
Plain smooth cream cheese
Sugar to taste
Drop or two of any essence. I prefer Almond or Lemon.
Mix the Cream cheese, Sugar and essence.
Start off with a crumpet, cream cheese filling and sliced Strawberries and repeat layers.
Secure with a tooth pick, ad garnish with any seasonal fruit.
This goes well with fruit kebabs.
Enjoy with a Champagne Breakfast , with Croissants and fruit kebabs. Muesli and yogurt.
