The King of Crumpets.
Member Name: Ladyboosh
Advantages: Bigger and more springy than inferior crumpets.
Disadvantages: One is never enough.
I don't know many people who would turn down a warm crumpet, glistening with melted butter.
Well, I have found the James Cordon of crumpets. Soft, sexy and with the capability to melt stuff at twenty paces, these bad boys are seriously good.
I was fed up with buying supermarket brand crumpets. Hard, flat discs of cardboard with little or no flavour which, frankly, resembled coasters.
My family all love Warburton's bread, so when I discovered that they made crumpets I decided to give them a try.
Sold in most supermarkets, I got mine in Sainsburys, for around 78p, there are six delectable crumpets in a simple plastic packet.
In their raw state they are pale and floppy but once toasted they firm up nicely and, if they are done under the grill, they become more golden. Personally, I prefer them done in the toaster so they remain soft, but either way they are delicious.
The taste is yeasty and a little more salty than other brands but I like this. They love to soak up butter, in fact they are like little Spongebob Squarepants, sucking the golden nectar deep into their many bubbly recesses, so your chin gets messy with each bite.
Much thicker than the average crumpet, they are filling. I can only manage two but my son can polish off three or four at a time no problem, however, being low in fat they are not really a guilty pleasure. Just a pleasure.
What you put on top of the butter is up to you. I love Marmite or lemon curd, but in the world of crumpets anything goes really. Jam, peanut butter, honey are all good sweet choices. My son puts ketchup and cheese on top and pops them back under the grill to make little pizzas. It's entirely up to you!
Summary: Not just for breakfast.
