Hello, today I have a little post for you and am interest in what you call them – Drop Scones, Flapjacks, Crumpets or Pancakes? I call them Crumpets but I also know them as flapjacks 🙂 For me pancakes are definitely a very very very thin ‘cake’ and are different in texture to the ‘crumpet’.
A ‘crumpet’ is thicker than a pancake as there is the addition of baking powder in the batter and are normally made smaller than a pancake.
To get a lovely smooth mixture add some flour to the egg mixture and beat it in well, then add some milk and beat that in. Continue alternating between the two until you have finished the ingredients.
When the ‘crumpet’ looks like this it is ready to be flipped.
It should look something like this (above photo) once you have flipped the ‘crumpet’. The other side will be a bit lighter than this side as you will not need to cook it as much.
Here you can see the lighter colour of the other side of the ‘crumpet’. I have not given you an exact amount of but rather an about amount of ‘crumpet’ as you may decide to make your ‘crumpets’ bigger or smaller than mine.
If you are unsure how to cube a mango here is a little article that you may wish to look at – http://www.deliaonline.com/how-to-cook/fruit-and-vegetables/how-to-prepare-and-serve-a-mango.html .
Once your ‘crumpets’ are cooked place some mango and passion fruit ontop and drizzle with a little of the lime and honey dressing.
You may wish to serve your ‘crumpets’ with a dollop of yoghurt on the top or if you prefer some freshly whipped cream or ice cream, I think I would go for the last option but I didn’t have any in the house.
I hope you enjoy xx

- Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into your pan and wait till some bubble start to appear on the surface, it should take about a minute, flip it over and cook for about another 30 seconds and then remove from the pan.
- Wipe the pan with the oily kitchen towel and continue as above with the rest of the mixture.
- In a small bowel, cut up the mango into small cubes and mix it with the 2 passion fruits.
- To make the little dressing squeeze the limes in a bowl and mix well with the honey.
- Spoon and drizzle on top of you crumpets.
