- 8 oz Sourdough Discard
- 1 tsp Caster sugar
- ½ tsp Salt
- ¼ tsp Baking soda
- Cooking spray
These Sourdough Crumpets are another great way to use up that discard you get each time you feed your sourdough starter. I can’t stand the idea of food waste and that’s why I didn’t embrace the sourdough trend for a long time! But now that I’ve realised there are many things that I can make from the discard, I don’t feel bad about it!
Start by mixing the ingredients for the crumpet batter together. Leave the batter settle for a few minutes. To cook the crumpets, I use some round cookie cutters or egg rings. I heat the rings on a pan and heat them through before adding batter (don’t skip the heating step or the crumpets will stick). I cook them for about 5 minutes until bubbles appear on top. When the bubbles burst, I flip the crumpet and finish cooking on the other side. Butter and jam are essential toppings for these crumpets.
