Banana crumpets with crispy bacon and maple syrup

Serves: 4-6
Cooking Time: 35 mins

Ingredients

  • Crumpet:
  • 280 g (500 ml) cake flour
  • 20 ml baking powder
  • 2 ml salt
  • 20 ml sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 350 ml Clover Fresh Full Cream Milk
  • 25 ml (25 g) Clover Mooi River Butter, melted
  • 50 ml sunflower oil, for cooking
  • Additions:
  • 250 g streaky bacon or Macon
  • 4 bananas, peeled and sliced in 3 lengthways

Instructions

1

Place the bacon or Macon on a wire rack and place over a tray, place this on the top level of your oven and then turn the grill on to 160°C, cook for 10 minutes until crispy.

2

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients; set aside.

3

In a measuring jug, whisk together the eggs, Clover Milk and Clover Butter.

4

Using a whisk slowly incorporate the egg mixture into the flour mixture. The final mix should be a thick smooth batter. Set aside.

5

Add a little oil to your frying pan; add 2 slices of banana to the pan quite far apart, allowing space for spreading.

6

Place table spoonfuls of batter over the bananas to cover; allow to cook for 2 -3 minutes a side, until golden.

7

Once bubbles start to appear on the surface and begin to pop, the crumpet is ready to turn over.

8

Using a silicon egg lifter, flip the crumpets over; allow to cook through.

9

Place in a warm oven to keep warm before serving.

Serve with Maple syrup and crispy bacon.
