It is rare for me to bake bread at the beginning of July. The summer here does not invite that type of activity. But, the other day I shared a recipe for Bannock, a stovetop bread. That got me to thinking about what other breads I could make on my griddle and I knew that English Muffins was one of them.
I had only made English Muffins once before, and that was YEARS ago! I had thought that I could only make them with sour dough starter, and I never end up keeping any around my kitchen. But, I decided to try to make them with regular yeast and see how they turned out. Guess what! They were a hit with everyone in my house! (There are currently quite a few of us here!)
My muffins came out light and fluffy. One big deal is that they cooked all of the way through! That seems like a giant feat for me because:
English Muffins are baked on a griddle that is sprayed with cooking spray and then sprinkled with corn meal or farina. The dough should be soft and smooth. Check out this gallery of photos:
Okay, there aren't really any "nooks and crannies," and no sour dough flavor, but the fluffy, yeasty flavor is really, really good. I hope you give these a try.
