Whole Wheat English Muffins

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe was given to me many years ago by the county Extension service. I love the muffins' hearty taste and light texture. If you're cooking for one or two, they keep well in the refrigerator or the freezer."

  1. Dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in water. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine milk, butter, salt, whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat well with an electric mixer. Add egg and yeast mixture; beat until smooth. By hand, stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to make a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Place on floured surface. Roll to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut into 4-in. circles. Allow to rise until doubled. Lightly sprinkle an electric fry pan or griddle with cornmeal. Bake over low heat for 10 minutes until nicely browned. Turn and bake 10 minutes longer. Cool. Store in the refrigerator. To serve, split with a fork and toast.

Great! I am assuming you add the other two tablespoons of sugar when you mix the milk, salt, w.w. flour, etc. For fun I used applesauce instead of butter and it turned out great.

I changed the flour ratio to 50/50 and they came out quite good. Next I will try going w/3 cups whole wheat. The second rising didn't rise too much for me, either. So I put them in a warm ove...

Who knew you could make English Muffins so easy!? These came out great, tasted better than store bought for sure - I will never buy again. They did not rise much on the 2nd rising so make sure...

It says use an electric frying pan and bake over low heat. Does that mean on the stove top or in the oven. What temperature do you bake it at? It was an easy recipe to follow, but the instruc...

This is a wonderful recipe. I used my breadmaker and it made it all the easier. I went ahead and put all of my freshly cut muffins on my griddle (already sprinkled with cornmeal) that goes over...

This recipe was yummy. I made a slight change with the flours, added 2 cups of each instead of what the recipe called for and it was really quite good.

Fantastic recipe! I made it with 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. They turned out beautifully! Many thanks for sharing!
