I've made them once using the recipe from The Cook's Book but they just weren't that great. can anyone point me in the direction of a good crumpet recipe?

Surely crumpets are spongey because they are a the ideal recepticle for industrial quantities of butter - when it's soaked through to the plate underneath you're onto a winner!
BTW I'm sure Nigella Lawson had a recipe but never tried it so I can't vouch for it.....

Bit of a butter purist myself, for me crumpets largely exist to hold as much as melted butter as possible.
We have a jam fan above
Cheese on crumpets is good and my girlfriend is a fan of marmite on the, (ergh!)
what else do you put on crumpets?

I've tried Fearnley Whittingstall's crumpet recipe before, but never found it to be quite satisfactory. I'm not sure you can make a crumpet at home that can hold more than it's own weight in butter, like any good industrial crumpet can.
