Cinnamon French Toast Crumpets – a breakfast delight

Cinnamon French Toast Crumpets

It’s been a very long while since I’ve written a blogpost so I’m easing back into it with a simple but scrumptious breakfast recipe, Cinnamon French Toast Crumpets.

I don’t know about you but breakfast can be a fraught affair in our house. School mornings can be especially rushed with one of mine who either has her nose in a book or is admiring her reflection somewhere other than at the breakfast table.  She is the same one that I struggle to get enough protein & calcium into during the day so I’m always looking for ways to add extra into her breakfast. We do variations of ricotta hotcakes regularly (and they double up as recess as well) & french toast but during winter we often have crumpets in the house so I thought why not try to french those up too?  Actually do the French even acknowledge French Toast as one of their’s? Something to Google later!

This is very simple to make & with the egg it gives a nutrient boost to breakfast. The same girl I was describing above also refuses to eat eggs at the moment but will eat them if they are mixed in as French toast or these crumpets Given that most mornings there isn’t the time (or inclination) to make your own crumpets from scratch we just use store bought ones, a couple of eggs, a splash of milk and some cinnamon.

Cinnamon French Toast Crumpets
