  1. didn't taste like crumpets, although they weren't horrible.. we want to have something like crumpets. they were like bread things??
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
