Breakfast AND brunches

We have all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we say why not go to town on it?

Blueberry and banana crumpets


Serves 4 | Prep 15 mins plus proving |

Cook 15 mins | Calories 632 (per serving)


300g (10½oz) gluten-free bread flour, or gluten-free plain flour mix

1½ tsp active dry yeast

½ tsp xanthan gum

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp salt

½ tsp caster sugar

750ml (26fl oz) lukewarm milk sunflower oil, for frying butter, to serve


orange marmalade

2 large bananas, peeled, sliced

2-3 tbsp walnuts, chopped whipped cream a handful of blueberries finely grated zest of 1 orange

1 For the crumpets: Stir together the flour, yeast, xanthan gum, bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.

2 Add the milk, stirring well to make a thick batter. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and let rest in a warm place for 3 hours.

3 When ready to cook, rub a large frying pan with 1 tbsp sunflower oil, preheating it over a medium-moderate heat until hot. Rub four crumpet rings with some more sunflower oil.

4 When the pan is hot, place the rings in it. Place large spoonfuls of the batter into each ring.

5 Cook over a low heat until small bubbles form on top and the bases are golden-brown, about 8-10 minutes.

6 Flip the crumpets over and cook for 1 minute before removing from the pan. Repeat steps 3-6 for the remaining crumpets.

7 When ready to serve, spread the crumpets with orange marmalade. Stack them on plates, interspersed with banana slices and walnuts.

8 Garnish with whipped cream, blueberries and orange zest.
