    english muffins have a weird cumbly-doughyness to them.
    but when toasted nicely, damn they are tastey and can be great for mini pizzas, too!

    Pop Tarts are pastey when they're not toasted. Fucking disgusting.

    And I'd like to add that just about every bread-based product tastes better when its toasted too. My scorched tongue told me so.

    this is a crumpet.
    when toasted they are quite tastey.
    when untoasted, they feel like McDonald's hot cakes.

    can we please go back to the crumpets for a sec?

    how do they make crumpets?

    how do they make those little holes where the tasty butter seeps in? mmmmm.... crumpets.

    no, really though, i need to know. it's been bothering me for years and no one can provide a satisfactory answer.

    English Crumpets
    Yield: 4 servings

    4 oz flour
    4 oz bread flour
    2 ts salt
    1/4 oz fresh yeast
    1 ts sugar
    1/2 pt warm milk and water
    1 tb vegetable oil
    1/2 ts bicarbonate of soda
    1/4 pt warm water

    Sift the flours and salt into a warm bowl. Cream the yeast with
    the sugar. Add the warmed milk and water, then the oil. Stir into
    the flour to make a batter, and beat vigorously until smooth and
    elastic. Cover the bowl, put in a warm place and leave it until
    the mixture rises and the surface is full of bubbles (about 1 1/2
    hours). Break it down by beating with a wooden spoon. Cover and
    leave in a warm place to prove for another 30 minutes.

    To cook the crumpets, heat and grease the bakestone lightly. Grease
    5 or 6 crumpet rings (3-3 1/2 inches) (or scone cutters) and put
    them on the bakestone to heat. Cook as many crumpets as possible
    at a time, as the batter will not stay bubbly for long. Put 1/2
    inch deep of batter into each ring. Cook gently for 7 - 10 minutes,
    or until the surface sets and is full of tiny bubbles. Using an
    oven glove for protection, lift off the ring, and if the base of
    the crumpet is pale gold, flip it over and cook for another 3
    minutes until the other side is just colored.

    If the crumpet batter is set but sticks slightly in the ring, push
    it out gently with the back of a wooden spoon. Wipe, grease and
    heat the rings for each batch of crumpets. If serving immediately,
    wrap the crumpets in a cloth and keep warm between batches. Butter
    generously and serve at once. If reheating, toast the crumpets
    under the grill, cooking the smooth surface first and then the top
    so that the butter will melt into the holes
