After trying a couple of different recipes for English muffins, this is the one that I like the best. The muffins rose taller and tasted just a little bit better. I was actually surprised at how easy it is to make English muffins. Here is the recipe I used. It’s adapted it from Allrecipes.com.

2. Ingredients for English Muffins
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 6 cups flour
- 1 tsp salt
- Warm the milk in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave for one minute (should be lukewarm).
- Mix in the sugar, stirring until dissolved. In mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
- Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
- Add the milk to the yeast mixture, as well as the melted butter, salt and 3 cups flour.
- Beat until smooth.
- Add rest of flour, or enough to make a soft dough. Knead or use mixer.
- Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise, about an hour.
- Punch down gently, or rather, sort of slide the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface.
- Roll out to about ½ inch thick.
- Cut rounds with biscuit cutter, drinking glass, or empty tuna can.
- Sprinkle waxed paper with cornmeal and set the rounds on this to rise.
- Dust tops of muffins with cornmeal also (this prevents the dough from sticking to the waxed paper).
- Cover and let rise ½ hour.
- Heat greased griddle.
- Cook muffins on griddle about 10 minutes on each side on medium heat.
4. Tips and advices:
- If your muffins seem to be getting too brown on the sides but aren’t done in the middle, throw them in the oven 350 degrees for 8 minutes. (Here, I had problems, because, as I have stated before, my griddle has one temperature: too hot. I browned both sides for a few minutes and then baked the muffins in the oven for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.)
