NOTES : Scots Crumpets are also called Tea Pancakes. They can be made either on a fairly hot griddle, or in a lightly greased, heavy pan, such as an omelette pan. An alternative to the method below is to separate the eggs, beat the whites until stiff and add them last, which makes a light, crisp melt-in-the-mouth pancake.
