I purchased British Style Crumpets
during a quick visit to the new Trader Joe's in Lexington
on Sunday afternoon.
Plain Crumpets (above) and Cinnamon Crumpets (below)
have become a new favorite breakfast for 13 year-old AJ.
I toast them in the toaster oven,
spread a little pure Irish Butter on the warm crumpets,
then add jam to the plain crumpets
and a little cinnamon sugar to the cinnamon crumpets.
I found a recipe
in the book
Tea and Crumpets
Recipes and Rituals from European Tearooms and Cafes
by Margaret M. Johnson
but, the Trader Joe's Crumpets are
perfect for a quick breakfast on school days
especially with a nice cup of English Breakfast Tea.
