Crumpets With Fruit, Ricotta & Maple Syrup

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 4 mins

I make this when I have guests for brekky or brunch or when I feel like a posh breakfast for myself. Super simple but looks and tastes great.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 crumpets
  • 125 g ricotta cheese
  • 425 g canned fruit (your choice but apricots or peaches are great)
  • 12 cup chopped pecans (optional) or 12 cup walnuts (optional)
  • maple syrup, to drizzle


  1. Toast crumpets on both sides and spread tops liberally with ricotta cheese.
  2. Top with fruit and nuts and drizzle with maple syrup to serve.

These were really good! I doubled the portion size and tried one with maple syrup and one with dulce de leche (which was even better!). Topped each with about a quarter of a banana (since I don't like canned fruit).

The DM and I thoroughly enjoyed this for a light lunch. Didn't have crumpets so used fruity english muffins, split and toasted and some tinned mango cheeks which I sliced, didin't use the nut option or maple syrup as I felt that would make it too sweet for us. Thank you Mandy, made for Aussie/Kiwi Swap #34 November 2009.

Tasty and simple brekkie! I used a light ricotta and some crushed hazelnuts for the nut option, otherwise made exactly as stated. Next time I think I'll try it with some whipped cream cheese. Yum! Thanks Mandy! Made for ZWT 4.
