  1. Whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon and 2 tsp icing sugar in a wide, shallow bowl. Add the crumpets and soak for 2 mins each side.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the berries, 1 tbsp icing sugar and 1 tbsp water in a small saucepan over a low heat for 5 mins or until warmed through and syrupy. Add the maple syrup.
  3. Melt the butter in a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the crumpets for 2-3 mins each side until golden brown and piping hot.
  4. Divide the crumpets between 2 plates and dust with the remaining 1 tsp icing sugar. Top with the yogurt, spoon over the berry compote and finish by drizzling with extra maple syrup, if you like.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Freeze cooked crumpets only. Once completely cool, wrap well in a double layer of clingfilm and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost fully before eating. For more tips on freezing and defrosting food, read our article Love Your Freezer.
