Currently having a discussion on MSN with a UGer about crumpets. She's pretty confused by them and to be honest, I don't blame her; how do you describe the taste of a crumpet? She thinks it's like pastries, but it isn't. It's made from yeast but it's. Yeah. Feel free to help me out here.

Also, in this thread, we talk about how you enjoy your crumpets (lightly toasted with butter!) and other English food.

Also, wondering what they are?

Nice with chocolate. Also, I think I might make some later

Crumpet? You gotta know what cricket is to know what a crumpet is!


Or was it the other way around...

(nobody will get this reference.)

Also nice with M&MS, if I had to describe crumpets they have the texture of untoasted bread but the taste of slightly toasted bread and a lot of butter.

Never had them. Are they like biscuits?

Nothing like. They're soft, spongy, yet quite. Gr. They're hard to explain, and was half of my intention in this thread for someone else to say quite nicely what they're like

I guess untoasted bread is just bread, I only put untoasted their because i planned on putting toasted later in my post..

Spongy is the word I had in mind. Almost....bubbly? Haha it really is a bitch to explain. They're kinda chewy as well...

It sort of tastes like slightly undercooked bread dough, with extra air in it. Except it's fully cooked and won't give you yeast poisoning.

Like unleavened bread, except it's risen.

All bubbly. It goes crisp when toasted. Tastes amazing with butter (for a savoury snack) or jam (for a treat).

Not biscuits or anything like that.

are they moist?


No, you have to add butter to them. They just taste like undercooked bread dough with a completely different spongy texture.

I think he means these...

Well i'm stumped then. If it's soft and spongy, looks like a biscuit, but isn't a biscuit....round, bread, crispy when toasted ....bah i give up. I'll have to try one of these for myself.

They taste of awesome. That's as far as I can go. Ask Sophie Dahl, after a ten minute story about an old sailor she'll give you an answer.

Anyone who's interested in bread-based luncheon snacks must try a blaa.

This... is a blaa:


Bitta roast chicken an red sauce in that floury bread roll from the south of Ireland and you'll find heaven in that building site where you work.

The second layer of beauty is in the name. Pronounced in a Waterford accent, just saying the word "blaa" can go on for as long as you've got.

Pretty sure if you go to a megamart in the US they will be similar to "English" muffins, but not exactly.

Looks like an English muffin in that first picture. How similar are they to English muffins? I'm going to assume not at all.

Crumpets are the best thing England has ever produced.

I'd say they're best described as a savory sponge cake.

Haven't had a crumpet in ages.

Bestest way - toasted over a coal fire, then a shit-ton of butter.

Absolutely not. They're not bread.

I clicked that. Click on the picture of crumpets.
Now I'm more confused than ever.

All I know is that if you heat them up then add butter, they become saturated with it. Sort of a bread-like sponge that leaves a pool of butter when you put it back on the plate.

And yeah, I don't think there's a way of describing them. You'd have to hold/feel/taste one to get it, I think.

That sounds like a cookie I had once. It was disgusting and I couldn't finish it.

Or a cob.

EDIT: A crumpet is like eating a normal sponge, only with a more chewy/sticky/elastic (though not actually sticky or elastic, and not really that chewy) texture.

Seriously, why did you have to talk about crumpets?

I'd hand you Normandy for a crumpet with butter right now, you dirty Englishmen.
