In the world of crumpets, Warburtons have hit the nail on the head with their giant versions. A way to make you FEEL like you’re only eating one while still making you FEEL like you’ve eaten enough crumpet (actually, there’s probably never enough crumpets but you catch my drift)! Bigger is definitely better when it comes to those yummy warm treats which are so delicious served sweet but equally as yummy eaten as a savoury dish! And the brand HAS to be Warburtons. HAS to be!
I promise you I have tried several super market own brands and they just don’t cut the custard. I say custard because well, although mustard would work very well with a crumpet and some Welsh rarebit I have chosen a sweet treat for my crumpets to share with you today! You may have seen the news that Warburtons have gone less Sly these days and have the muppets running the show? Brilliant idea yet again! Well, now Dr. Bunsen Honeydew challenges you to get inventive with the Giant Crumpets! I didn’t need asking twice!

Warburtons sent me a little hamper so that I could give it a go myself (remember the custard mention) and this is what I came up with much to the children’s delight! What are you going to try?
Caramelised Banana Crumble Crumpet and Custard
1 giant Warburtons crumpet, one banana peeled and thinly sliced, 2 tablespoons of caster sugar, a tablespoon of salted butter, 2 tablespoons of flour, a small handfull of milled linseed and chopped nuts and a pot of custard.
While you are toasting your crumpet, fry the banana slices in one quarter of the butter and 1 tbsp of sugar until soft and browned. Place the toasted crumpet in a baking dish and cover the top of it with the buttery caramel and banana mixture. Mix the crumble mixture using the rest of the butter with the milled linseed, nuts and remaining sugar and cover the top of the bananas. Place in the oven on a medium setting for around 25 minutes et voila! Serve with custard to your liking.
SERVES ONE, CUT IN HALF FOR PICTURE PURPOSES ONLY – COME ON! IF ANYONE ELSE WANTS SOME THEY CAN MAKE THEIR OWN!
