CHOCOLATE CRUMPETS VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE WITH SALTED CARAMEL SPREAD

Chocolate Salted Caramel Crumpets:

Ingredients:

  • 100g Gluten-free Bread Flour*
  • 5 tsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp xanthan gum
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp fast action dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar (don’t use a sugar-free alternative as the yeast needs it to help the batter rise)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 250ml milk of choice, warmed
  • 30g Love Cocoa sea salt dark chocolate

Method:

  • In a bowl, sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.
  • Add in the sugar and yeast. Mix to combine.
  • Pour in the oil and start adding in the warm milk slowly while mixing. Make sure there are no lumps of flour in the batter.
  • Cover with cling film and a towel. Leave to rise overnight in a warm place.
  • Heat a little bit of oil in a frying pan over a low/medium heat and lightly oil crumpet rings.
  • Place the crumpet rings in the pan and add about 2 tbsp of the batter into each of the rings. Cook for 10 minutes, flip and continue cooking for another 1 minute. Transfer onto a cooling rack.

For the salted caramel spread:

  • 140g soft dates
  • 4 tbsp almond butter (you can also use cashew butter)
  • 50g Love Cocoa sea salt dark chocolate
  • 65ml milk of choice

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. 

*If you don’t have a problem with gluten, you can substitute the gluten-free flour with plain flour and leave out the xanthan gum.
