This weekend has seen many celebrations in London marking Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. There was quite a line-up of entertainers at Buckingham Palace for the Jubilee concert, including Australia’s own Kylie, Rolf Harris, Gurrumul, and many others from all over the Commonwealth.
British cuisine offers many delicious dishes and I decided to give one of my favourites a low FODMAP makeover…CRUMPETS.
Low Fod Map Crumpets Recipe
Often eaten for breakfast or as a tea-time treat, crumpets are made with a yeasted batter that is cooked in a lightly greased pan on the stove. The addition of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) helps to create the characteristic air bubbles.
Speciality crumpet rings are available but I found these nifty egg rings did the job perfectly.
The crumpets cook slowly over a low heat until the bottoms are a deep golden and the tops are set. The rings are removed and the crumpets are flipped over to cook the top until lightly golden. I like to pop them into a toaster before serving with a little butter and jam. If you have any left I suggest you store them in the fridge in an airtight container or freeze for later.
