Simple Pleasures


Crumpets. I grew up having these occasionally for breakfast, but have rather forgotten about them in recent years — maybe it's time to rediscover them, dripping butter and all.

Mmm, butter. :)

I second thewaltz in saying:

Mmm, honey butter...

Yay! Crumpets are the BEST! Yes, they MUST be dripping with butter! This makes me very nostalgic for home... I also like a thin layer of Vegemite. True comfort food.

Okay, I'm raving but this image is a lovely start to a blah work day!

I've never had one. Is it just like a biscuit?

Kind of, Cassandra, but they have a lighter, spongier texture with all these little air pockets — perfect for catching melted butter!

My friend's granny has the best phrase - Crumpets Aloft! - she uses it when most of us would swear. I've really enjoyed your blog. Thank you!
