 Crumpets... or what we call "English Muffins"

     There is quite a history to Crumpets and I will leave that to your readings. Some folks say it dates as
     far back as the 13th century and others say that the definitive beginning was sometime in the 18th. To
     me it really doesn't matter, except to say they are delicious and one of my favorite morning breakfast
     and snack items!

    Some recipes call for no eggs or more flour or no butter or various amounts of baking powder... but the
    truth is that you need some baking soda to give the famous bubbles that we are all so found of in this country!
    When you read that various English chefs, home bakers and critics make their own Crumpets... then you know,
     that making them fresh is one of the hidden secrets!

     Plus it is fun to make! Enjoy! -- Roger
