Fluffy toasted crumpets take me back to a time in my childhood; every Sunday morning we would be treated to freshly toasted crumpets layered in butter and homemade raspberry jam.
I can almost smell their sweet, toasted aroma!
English crumpets are believed to date back to the 1300’s; where our anglo Saxon ancestors toasted a yeast leavened bread on griddles. Jump forward to the Victorian era and they added even more yeast to give the crumpets their bubbly, fluffy texture.
All the crumpet nooks and crannies allows the butter to slowly melt into the crumpet and offers every single bite a smooth, creamy buttery taste.
The addition of dark chocolate to this crumpet recipe is absolutely amazing and brings a whole new taste sensation. The recipe is easy to make and if you can take the time to make up the batch the day before cooking, you will be rewarded with extra FLUFFY crumpets.
They just so happen to be gluten free and suitable for Vegans – Hold on there readers, do not judge a crumpet by its ingredients.
Rich, smooth, chewy and utterly delicious, you will not be disappointed.
Who does not LOVE a good bit of crumpet??
