My favourite memory of food is having a mucky bacon and egg sarnie cooked on the back of a shovel from the crew of a Great Western railway engine on Snow Hill Station.I was about 13. What a treat.

They don't call them Pikelets now do they?
They are Crumpets.
I would rather have a bit of Pikelet than Crum
Maybe not.

I think it depends on where you come from in the north they are called pikelets in the south crumpets we are in the middle so you can call them what ever you like and you won't be wrong. ( Pikelets for me )

The main thing is they have to be hot and smothered in dribbly butter.

I can understand were your mother was coming from . Not many people had snakes for pets in them days.
