240 g cake flour

1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder

60 g castor sugar

pinch of salt

2 eggs, separated

1½ cups (375 ml) buttermilk

2 Tbsp (30 ml) vegetable oil

butter for frying

1 pkt (250 g) streaky bacon, fried until crispy

maple syrup for serving

Place flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a bowl and mix until just combined.

Whisk the egg yolks, buttermilk and oil together in a separate bowl, and then stir the mixture into the dry ingredients.

Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form and gently fold into the batter.

Heat a little butter in a non-stick frying pan and fry tablespoonfuls of batter for about 2 minutes on each side or until light golden brown and the crumpets are cooked. Remove from the pan and serve immediately with crispy bacon and maple syrup.
