what the fuck is a Crumpet? I honestly have no fucking idea.
It's difficult o describe the crispy, soft, fluffy happiness that is a crumpet.
It's effectively a bread dough that's got to much water in it. You prove it, then chuck in bicarbonate of soda before cooking it in a metal ring on a searingly hot pan. Once it's cooked on both sides, you let it cool, then you toast it.
Complete bugger to make by hand, but absolutely worth the effort.
