Crumpets à la Marsay!!! ~ Sweet Friday

It has been a long while since I had the chance to pen down a blog, and my most favourite topic has to involve FOOD!!! I simply love Blogging the way I go about making even the most “common” or “easiest” of dishes.

There just has to be some reason to spoil yourself every now and again with a scrumptious sweet treat, like these crumpets, and I had good reason to make them after like forever. Wanting to make a special breakfast treat for my husband, Imran,on our 14th Wedding Anniversary that just passed during this week, I decided to quickly whip up an old fav… CRUMPETS?

There seems to be different names for what this simple treat is called, from a Flapjack to english muffins but here in South Africa we tend to call it either a Flapjack(which is slightly larger in size) OR as I’ve called it Crumpets. Whatever you may label these as, I hope you do give my recipe a try and would appreciate some feedback?

So here follows my much tested recipe that I always fall back on for a quick sweet treat, ENJOY??
