Crumpets, pancakes, flapjacks, whatever you want to call them, this is possibly one of my favourite recipes from childhood. We’d help our mom make the batter and then watch in anticipation as she cooked them up, until finally, she’d give us a chance to pour crazy shapes into the pan at the end. What a nostalgically apt post this is, seeing as my mom and dad have just arrived in Japan and I’ll be meeting up with them in Osaka tomorrow. Excited desu.
5 tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk
1 ½ tablespoons melted butter
2 cups of flour
4 teaspoons baking powder

Beat the eggs, adding the sugar. Add half a cup of milk and the butter.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and add this to the egg mixture.
Gradually stir in the remaining ½ cup of milk to form a smooth batter.
Recipe makes about 25 small crumpets.
