Crumpets

I stopped into a shop in the next town over, and discovered that they sell crumpets!

I’ve never eaten a crumpet, but I did know they are cousins to the English Muffin.  I grew up eating english muffins – my favorite was cinnamon and raisin.  I loved way the butter melted into the little holes that appeared after it was split.

Crumpets are a lighter texture due to being made with yeast, and have one side toasted and the nooks and crannies are on the top.  Of course, they can be  topped with all manner of goodies like butter and jam, devonshire cream, honey, and more.

I must get a set of muffin rings and try my hand at this English treat.
