German Chocolate Crumpets with Sweet Cream Cheese

Tiffany Bannworth


I do love crumpets, which are similar but different from the English muffin.

Most crumpets use yeast, but I omitted what in this particular recipe.

I really loved the chocolate, the coconuts, and the pecans. Give this a try at tea time.

I like these best with Lady Earl Grey Tea.

How to Make German Chocolate Crumpets with Sweet Cream Cheese


  1. Mix all the crumpet ingredients by hand with a wooden spoon. When thoroughly mixed, let rest for 20 minutes in refrigerator.
  2. Then in a frying pan and greased crumpet rings (you can also use tuna fish cans with top and bottom removed)on medium, spoon in batter. Only fill halfway up, but spread thoroughly around the bottom.

    I got my crumpet/English muffin rings on Amazon for a steal.
  3. Do not flip until you have sufficient bubbles atop. Then remove rings and flip. After a quick finish on the top, remove from frying pan, and do over until all batter is used.
  4. I keep mine warm in a Pyrex casserole dish in the oven at the 175F-200F.
  5. To make spread, allow all ingredients to warm to room temperature. Mix very well. You may serve at room temperature or refrigerate.
  6. You may also serve these with jam and Devonshire Cream (clotted cream).
