More English Toasts

Soft, white Baps

The soft, white Bap is really an import from France where the traditions of bread-making are probably even more diverse than those of England.

But cut and toasted they make an excellent addition to our afternoon tea ‘toasts’ along with crumpets and the Sally Lunn.

Just one final recipe to add to this list, and that is the English Muffin. Essentially it is the same batter as the Crumpet but with less liquids to give a firmer, more mouldable dough.

The three bronze tines in the lower image are those of a traditional toasting fork. It is very similar to the one I inherited from my grandmother, which is Victorian. About twelve inches long, the tines and the moulded handle are of brass, while the shaft is of bronze.
