Re: Crumpets?

I follow the Hairy Bikers' recipe - they look nothing like supermarket ones but they don't last long in our house.

Hello,

Does anyone know where one can get crumpets?

I got the cravings (well I had it for the last 7 years here but it just got serious ) and I read in this old thread they were sold at Carrefour in Mulhouse - is this still the case or is there anywhere else in the northwest Switzerland or across the border in Germany that sells them?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Crumpets?

Although Brexit has put a temp hold on cheese exports, I did manage to get hold of a few packs of Crumpets on the black market. Only available at the Viadukt tonight and tomorrow (when they will sell out). Hope to get a regular supply again soon though.

Re: Crumpets?

Legends Pies (pies.ch) will be offering Hot Cross Buns for Easter. Orders open next week.

Grumpy, will you be offering them again?

Crumpets are like a Pikelet but with thicker dough, and the bubbles are a lot bigger.
This results in a firmer base with a pourus top able to be filled with a seemingly bottomless supply of butter and your condiment of choice (Honey, Jam, or more Aussie - Vegemite).


......spose you want to know what a Pikelet is now?

Crumpets and vegemite...? You fiend!
