Trader Joe's British Style Crumpets

At my most recent trip to Trader Joe's last night (with the sister, in fact), I bought some cinnamon British Style Crumpets (In honor of you, Herm.  And soon you, Hannah!).

It's an item I've never purchased before, but it caught my eye in the bread section when I was explaining to the sister that the only two kinds of cinnamon bread at Trader Joe's both have raisins!  This is a no-no, so I decided to try the crumpets.  I had my first one this morning and I'm in love.

I popped it in the toaster.  Spread on some of my Earth Balance Buttery Spread, then it's time to eat up!  Was comparable to a cinnamon-y pancake.

Have you ever eaten or made crumpets?  Where?

  1. How did they compare to English muffins? Just softer?

    1. I spoke too soon. Here's a nice article: http://www.thekitchn.com/whats-the-difference-crumpets-113577.

    2. Taste-wise they really only remind me of pancakes, not English muffins at all. I read that article, I'm curious as to how they get cooked the whole way through if it's only cooked on one side.

      I was unsure of which end was the "top" and which was the "bottom", but according to that article the flat end is the bottom?
