    What the fuck is a crumpet, Trumpet is a wind instrument, but I don't think I ever saw a crumpet.

    I used to buy them in Marks and Sparks and then pop them in the toaster. They made good cheese flavoured ones.

    I think crumpet is an Ozzie term and you can buy them in any major supermarket and imported from Oz.

    I would certainly like to learn how to make them though and thanks Jizzy for the link!

    You can buy them from Villa, but not all the time. They are very bloody expensive in here though.

    The villa ones are frozen and then left to thaw out, they develop mould very very quickly and after being frozen and toasted, just do not taste the same.

    Crumpets are awesome covered in butter and honey.

    As kids we would have them covered in tomatoe sauce. Don't complain until you try it, tastes great.

    So, I want to learn to make them, where to buy all the ingrediants and get fat again.

    Them is English Muffins, I have eaten em and I really like em toasted with butter and gam with my coffee, and Cup Cakes are cake batter cooked in usually paper cups in a muffin pan, but English muffins look nothing like American muffins cause they are shaped more like a biscuit while a muffin and a cup cake are shaped and look the same as they are cooked in tghe same pan, but with different ingredients.

    same as the difference as a beef sandwich, a pork sandwich and a fish sandwich,, might look the same but different ingreds. diffwerent name. You might be a happy man but Ya a silly bastard.

    Of course they are not English Muffins....nothing like tham.

    And as for it being an Aussie thing, get real.

    crumpets is crumpets and muffins is muffins, both come from the UK. Can't really be any simpler.

    Poached eggs on pikelets or crumpets, yum! After seeing the recipe pikelets look very easy to make.

    crumpet


    England: Crumpets



    This essentially English comfort food has been around for at least a few hundred years, though the actual timing is a little uncertain. Over that time, the crumpet has gathered to itself a whole spectrum of meanings and associations in British culture: coziness, warmth, home and hearthside, the tea table loaded down with nice things... because where crumpets are, tea is usually not far behind. Toasted on one side under the grill or in the toaster or toaster oven, slathered with butter that seeps into all those lovely little holes... a crumpet is something special.
    (Harry Potter readers, take note: where the US editions of the earlier HP books say "English muffin", they really mean crumpet. The US editors, then nervous about introducing too many British cultural references, substituted the closest North American breakfast breadstuff they could find -- but the texture and flavor of the crumpet are completely different from those of the English muffin.)
    The Oxford English Dictionary tells us when the word first turned up in print, as a variant of the much older phrase "crompid cake":
    [1694:Westmacott] They make Cakes of it (Buck Wheat)...as they do oat-cakes, and call it Crumpit. Crumpet...A soft cake made of flour, beaten egg, milk, and barm or baking powder, mixed into batter, and baked on an iron plate...Now usually a soft, round, doughy cake made with flour and yeast, cooked on a griddle or the like and usually eaten toasted with butter. [1769:Raffald] To make tea crumpets..."
    The recipe may possibly have originated in the English Midlands as a variant of the older pancakes and griddle breads that were already commonplace. (There seem to be connections with the Welsh pancake called cremog and the Breton buckwheat krampoch.)
    Naturally in the UK you can buy them in stores: but storebought crumpets can't really compare with the real thing made fresh just minutes before you eat it. The problem is that at first glance, it seems like a lot of work in that you wind up needing griddles, crumpet rings and so forth. But making crumpets is nowhere near as much work as it sounds like, and really rewards the effort. What's important is to find the right recipe.... and we've got it.

    If I could get decent lemons I'd have a crack at making lemon curd, I used to love that as a kid. Makes me wonder if its the rose tinted childhood memory or not but lemon curd on crumpets has got me salivating.

    wheres the crumpet?
