Crumpets

Talk to me about crumpets, and your crumpet preferences. Ever made your own? Seems like a hell of a lot of hassle to me.
Any toppings you have other than butter?? For me I simply would not, but in the last few days I’ve seen people have them with marmite & cheese on top (fine… maybe) and nutella and raspberries (not fine but can’t put my finger on why).
How do you like yours done? I used to be a medium rare gal but now I’m more well done. My best friend likes hers burnt, she knows they’re ready when her smoke alarm goes off.
I used to have two crumpets, but now I only have one.

I have attempted to make my own from sourdough discard but they came out weird.

Must be cold by now?

Sets off my trypophobia slightly so I butter the flat end, love it with some butter and toasted

Hazelnut chocolate spread…but only on square ones.

See, that’s why I wouldn’t bother. You never hear of anyone’s homemade crumpets coming out better than shop bought, do you??

:scream: can understand the reasoning behind this but wow!

don’t really understand the appeal
the way i see it, I love bagels and crumpets are the opposite of bagels in every way, and therefore bad

I love crumpets and bagels equally. Different carbs for different needs, IMO.
For example, you can have a bagel as a sandwich but musn’t do that with crumps.

Not arsed.

Sourdough discard crumpets are alright though.

They are to bagels what these are to polos

Jesus I cannot think today

An old housemate used to do cheesy beans on toast, but instead of toast it was four (4) crumpets. How do you feel about that?

They must be cooked under the grill. Cook the flat end first to get it nice and crisp, then cool the holey side until it’s hot and firm but not scorched.

Good morning Kermo. This morning I had two crumpets, buttered with Marmite. This is a change to my usual approach of two crumpets, buttered with Bovril.

My toaster is set to 7 (seven) when I toast my crumpets, this is a contrast to it being set at 3.5/4 (three point five or four) when having toast.

Honey’s acceptable. But you can never beat butter. One of those foods that needs to be perfectly toasted - the balance between crispiness and the soft centre is essential. Under toasted is never okay.

Do it with all 5. You won’t regret it.
