Crumpets are great food.

The student life almost demands you buy an 8 pack from Tesco for 25p and grill the lot, apply butter and jam. mmm! Cheap meal

I've gone off crumpets recently. I've moved onto bagels as my toasted snack of choice.

and the muffin man? he lives down drury lane, surely?

fool, crumpets are pikelets and damn fine they are too. can never decide if i prefer muffins to pikelets though.
you got that recipe dino? they seem so insanely impossible to replicate but hey, I've got 3 weeks of retirement left to potter about in and all the NT places shutting down!

Crumpets are NOT pikelets. Go and stand in the corner.

Crumpets:



OK?

I think this clarifies matters http://www.greatbritishkitchen.co.uk/cg_muffins.htm

Your odd little drop scone things are from down under. Not less valid but not more valid than my assertion of them being the same thing as crumpets.
Also, sheds light on the muffin man's whereabouts.
Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

Pfffff. That woman also says that muffins shouldn't be cut in half to toast because they go tough. There's no other way to have them!!

British people are a bit confused with their terminology, aren't they.

In Aus, it all makes sense. We know our baked and griddled goods.

So, do they have scotch in them? I say 'pikelets' is no more stupid a name than 'scotch pancakes'. Pikelets all the way (I'd like some now).

Rofflemow @ Dino and Tiny's suggestions


A crumpet and a pikelet are made with pretty much the same batter, but a crumpet is poured into an oiled 7cm ring and cooked on the griddle, whereas a pikelet is allowed to run free over the surface of the griddle, giving a flatter, thinner end result.

Crumpet = tall pikelet
Pikelet = squat crumpet
