Crumpets recipe: From David Lebovitz.
A crumpet is a griddle cake made from flour and yeast.
An early reference to them comes from English Bible translator John Wycliffe in 1382 when he mentions the "crompid cake".
Their shape comes from being restrained in the pan/griddle by a shallow ring.
They have a characteristic flat top with many small pores and a chewy and spongy texture.
English crumpets are generally circular, roughly 8 centimetres (3 in) in diameter and 2 centimetres (3⁄4 in) thick.
