Homemade English Crumpets

Homemade English Crumpets ~ Simple Food


There’s something about hot buttered crumpets that takes me back to Sunday tea when I was a child, although these days I do prefer them at breakfast time.

There is nothing wrong with shop bought crumpets.

Until of course you try these, then there is no going back.
