Best french toast

This french toast is soft and velvety and almost like big thick pancakes.  It uses crumpets, cos I was addicted to them for about a month during winter.

4 crumpets (your general store bought kind)
1 egg
1 T sugar
pinch salt

Mix together the egg, and all the other ingredients except the crumpets is a shallow wide bowl.

Start soaking your crumpets. the longer the better, both sides. 

Get you pan nice and hot and drop the crumpets in, bubbley side down, cook both sides till golden.

Drop on a plate, and serve with bananas panfried in butter and golden syrup.  Goes with all your usual french toast bits and pieces too.
