Your fave local crumpet and butter makers are delivering a chocolate twist on brekkie

Pepe Saya and Crumpets by Merna are teaming up again to bring you chocolate crumpets and maple butter.


You've drooled over their OG rhubarb and butter crumpet box. You were tickled by the warm, raisin-speckled hot cross bunny crumpets for Easter. Now, it's time to check out Crumpets by Merna and Pepe Saya's latest offering: warm, chocolate crumpets paired with a rich, maple-infused butter just begging to be melted on top of them. 

The maple butter is made by rolling Pepe Saya's painstakingly crafted, hand-churned butter around in vanilla bean and then sinking the whole lot into organic maple syrup. And as for Merna's chocolate crumpets? Think if a brownie were to dress down for breakfast, but maintain its indulgent, sweet allure. They're decadent, but not too sweet – the perfect combination for a lazy weekend breakfast. 

A Breakfast in Bed box features chocolate crumpets, Pepe Saya's butter, a tub of mascarpone, and a selection of locally made artisanal Zokoko chocolate in Chale Milk and Tranquilidad Dark varieties ($37). If you'd like to hand over all your Mother's Day responsibilities to these local makers, they're also teaming up with Alexandria-based florist Mr Cook to deliver fresh flower bouquets along with your breakfast selection: choose from roses, tulips, chrysanthemums for $95 or opt for the Signature Bouquet by Sean for $185. Just make sure you order by May 3 to get in on time for a Mother's Day delivery. 

If you'd just like to try Merna's regular crumpets with some of that heavenly maple butter once you've finished spoiling your mum, just grab a box for $20. They also have an organic pancake making kit on offer ($25) as well as a potato-making pack, with all the ingredients necessary to make some crispy-on-the-outside while creamy-on-the-inside roast potatoes: a jar of Pepe Saya's ghee, a box of Sebago potatoes (as hand-picked by Farmer Greg, who runs Carriageworks' Block 11 stall, Olsson's crushed salt and a sneaky sprig of Nashdale rosemary ($17). Potatoes aren't strictly breakfast fodder – but what's to stop you having dinner in bed, too? 

So, you're a sweet-tooth. Get your fix with Arnott's secret recipe for the creamy, jammy Monte Carlo bikkie
