These turned out excellent! My English boyfriend was missing crumpets and these satisfied his craving. I wasn't able to get the traditional bubbles on the top, but nobody else mentioned that, so I'm wondering if that was just me. I'll definitely make these again!

I made these yesterday and followed the recipe exactly with splendid results. Very nice texture with just a hint of sweetness. This was a first for me to even have a crumpet but you can bet I'll be making this recipe a LOT!
