    Agreed - a disaster of cosmic proportions to an Englishman. At least it's not in the winter when we stick'em on a fork and toast 'em in front of a roaring fire.

    I eat them all year round.




    I was tempted to say I have crumpet all year round but an English Gentleman does not boast nor kiss and tell

    Not just Englishmen - I have a Swiss / German granddaughter who really , really loves them and she is visiting soon. I hope the shortage does not last:eek:

    You could make them yourself - fresh crumpet is the most amazing combination of moistness, firmness and warmth - but if you want them for breakfast having to prove them for an hour is a bit of a drag.

    Dear Roger,

    At my time of life, Frances and I agree that it's much better to stay with the same crumpet as before...

    Cheers,

    R.
