What’s TGIFTF you ask?! It’s ‘Thank God It’s French Toast Friday’, of course! Don’t you just love a Friday? I know you shouldn’t just live for the weekend, but who doesn’t?! And what better way to bring the weekend vibes in than by an epic Friday morning breakfast.
I’ve teamed up with Newburn Bakehouse by Warburtons who have launched a new product from their ‘Free From’ range, and it’s something I had not found a good gluten free alternative to before… crumpets!!! These crumpets are gluten, wheat and milk free, which is great for those of us with coeliac disease, gluten sensitivity or choosing to follow a gluten free diet. At 123 calories per crumpet and low in saturated fat and sugars, the Newburn Bakehouse crumpets make a perfect breakfast staple. You can find more nutritional information and look at their other products if you visit http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/full-of-soul
There is NOTHING wrong with a crumpet smothered with butter and jam or honey, or whatever you usually put on top of your crumpets, but why not go all out sometime and try mixing it up a bit and making the humble crumpet more of an event …and what better time to do that than on a Friday!
This hybrid creation makes the crumpet a stand-out dish. If you’re feeling more indulgent like I was this morning, then this would make an epic breakfast/brunch, but this recipe would also equally be delicious as a dessert!
I know I made it and it’s not very modest of me, but I would say this is a pretty darn delicious treat!! You’ll just have to give this a go and find out for yourself…
