  • 6 crumpets
  • 50 caster sugar
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 200g greek yogurt
  • 4 tbsp lemon curd


  • STEP 1

    Heat the grill to high and toast the crumpets on both sides until crisp.

  • STEP 2

    In a bowl, whisk the sugar and lemon juice. Sit the crumpets on a wire rack over a tray and then spoon the lemon syrup over the tops.

  • STEP 3

    Leave the crumpets to sit for a few minutes so the sugary topping can crisp up.

  • STEP 4

    To serve, stack three crumpets per plate like you’re serving pancakes.

  • STEP 5

    Drizzle any lemony syrup caught in the tray over the plate, then dollop half the greek yogurt on top of each along with a few tablespoons of lemon curd.
