I saw this recipe for homemade English Muffins on Utah Deal Diva and decided that I would try them. They were so yummy that I want to share this recipe with you. It does take a little time to cook them, but it’s well worth it!
Homemade English Muffins
1 3/4 cups (14 ounces) milk, warm
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 to 4 1/4 cups flour (I used 1 cup of wheat)
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 tsp baking powder
Combine the warm milk, sugar and yeast, allowing the yeast to proof for a few minutes, until bubbly. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly, for about 5 minutes. Do not add more flour, the dough will be very sticky. Once mixed, scrape dough from bowl onto a lightly floured counter top. Fold dough over a few times, until you make a nice, smooth ball. Place in a greased bowl and allow to rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
Punch down dough and lay out on a surface sprinkled with corn meal. Roll out to desired thickness. the muffins rise somewhat, so roll them out about 1/4″ thinner than what you would like the final product to be. Cut out circles with a floured 3-inch cutter. Re-roll and cut out the leftover dough. Cover the muffins with a damp cloth and let rest for about 20 minutes.
Heat a frying pan or griddle to very low heat. Do not grease, but sprinkle with cornmeal. Place muffins in pan, cover, and cook for 6-7 minutes on each side. Set the timer to keep track of the muffins.
Cool on a cooling rack. Store muffins in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
