Crumpets, crumpets, crumpets!
What's the difference between a crumpet and an English muffin? Holes my friend.
Crumpet holes go all the way from top to bottom. Just toast, slather in butter (add a dollop of jam if you like) and watch it melt, disappearing in to those holes for a deliciously, decadent buttery bite with your cup of tea.
Buy them locally at Trader Joe's, or even make your own - try King Arthur Flour's recipes for a date with butter's best friend.
