This recipe was an absolute disaster. I followed the recipe and quantities exactly and I ended up with a thick stodgy dough. The dough itself was tasteless and unappealing. I thought I could resurrect it by cooking it like damper, but it was only fit for feeding to the dog.

Wow! This is the best wheat free crumpet recipe I've ever had! I love crumpets and these taste great! Try them with butter and honey with your afternoon tea.
