    By far the worst directions of any recipe I have ever seen. I'm assuming that these have to rise? How long? No, you can't just add the dried yeast to the dry ingredients! Why does thus take 1:13 minutes? If you are going to post a recipe, actually post enough information to be useful.

    Made these for breakfast this morning. WOW! The whole family loved them! I made them in my pikelet pan so they were a tad smaller. Made over 24 and all went bar 4! Wanted to make crumpets for a long time, if I had realised how easy they are to make, I would have made them sooner! Thanks!!!

    These are awesome! Absolutely scrumptious. Taste like the authentic British crumpets I used to eat back home. I prepared the batter in the bread machine, and used 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp.) of dried yeast instead of the compressed yeast. I've made these twice now, and both times, they turned out GREAT! They can be refrigerated or frozen, and then toasted. Slather with butter, let it melt into the holes, then enjoy!!!<br/><br/>Edited to say that I've made these many times over the years, and they have never failed me! It is the only recipe I'll use! :)
