Everyone likes to claim that it’s not even worth eating a store bought crumpet after you have had a homemade one, but I beg to differ. I’d say with a friendly slather of butter the bought ones on my deliciousness scale fear quite well. That said the homemade ones ones are comparatively out of this world, simple culinary science making magic and absolutely worth the effort. I’m not sure my little ones are quite old enough to tackle the homemade crumpet for me this Mother’s Day but I did get to enjoy quite a few of them with our lovely friends from Citta Design who popped out to show us some of their AMAZING home wares. Take note kids: Mummy would love a cup of tea in bed on Sunday and pretty pretty please could it be in a Talo mug in Mauve or maybe Dusk?
What propels the crumpet into the stratosphere of awesomeness is their unique structure. Little tunnels formed by air bubbles which beg to be filled with butter, jam, and my latest discovery this delicious vanilla labne make the crumpet a very special Mother’s Day treat. Paired with a glass of this simple sour cherry and hibiscus tea mum is sure to be a happy bed dweller this Sunday.
