British Crumpets

I made crumpets for the first time recently if you have never had them, oh you are missing out, they are a British staple and often toasted and eaten with butter and sugar or Jam I adored them as a kid.

 My local fresh market sometimes sell them. This is the recipe I used from the BBC - crumpets , overall they were easy to make kind of a cross between a bread, as it uses flour and yeast and pancakes as cooked on a hot skillet. I used these little flower shaped fried egg makers. Not really sure what they are called, but any good cookie cutter would work. The key is to cook the batter on a high heat and let it bubble.

Here's a fun clip of Hairy Bikers making them :-)

Have you ever eaten crumpets before?
