I distinctly remember the first time that I ever tried a crumpet. My Dad had been working early in the morning and he was back home around the same time I was waking up for breakfast. I saw him buttering these round bread-like circles and asked if it was a new kind of toast. No quicker than one was passed to me, it was in my mouth and I have been hooked on crumpets ever since.
I think I practically lived on crumpets when I was a student, they were great value and filling and the toppings were almost endless, which meant that it felt like a different meal every time. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert – there was a crumpet for all occasions.
Back in the day, when I first started out on my crumpet loving journey, there was only one type of crumpet available and that wasn’t great for anyone with any kind of food intolerance. Now, fast forward a few years and thanks to Warburtons that has all changed! Newburn Bakehouse, the ‘Free From’ brand owned by baking company Warburtons, have developed an exciting gluten free crumpet so those with coeliac disease, intolerances or other dietary requirements can enjoy the traditional British breakfast item.
With one in 100 Brits living with coeliac disease, others with wheat allergies, gluten intolerance and many Brits choosing gluten free, Warburtons have listened to customer feedback and created a bakery range for those who need or choose gluten free, wheat free and milk free products. The crumpets will join the Newburn Bakehouse extensive ‘Free From’ range including loaves, hand crafted Artisan boules, rolls, wraps and sandwich thins – we have a recipe featuring these coming next month, so keep an eye out for that too.
To celebrate these new gluten free crumpets from Newburn Bakehouse, we have come up with 10 vegetarian crumpet toppings, that are all gluten free too. You can eat them all at any time of day as a meal or just a snack. I mean, who doesn’t want a fully loaded crumpet as a snack?
