English Muffins
May 16, 2009

I loved these muffins! They were easy to make, had a light texture, and had enough nooks and crannies to suit me! Thanks, everyone for all your tips. Here's my combination of tips: I added a pinch of sugar to feed the yeast. I used 3 cups whole wheat and 2 cups unbleached white flour. After the first rising, I formed the dough into a log and cut 18 slices, dredged them in corn meal then placed on a sprayed cookie sheet. I pre-heated my oven to 100 degrees, turned it off and set the trays in there for 30 minutes. They rose beautifully! And here's the best time saving tip of all: I removed the trays, heated the oven to 375 degrees and baked the muffins on the same trays for 5 minutes on one side, then flipped and baked them another 5 minutes. They turned out perfect! Watch out though, the 18 slices made pretty big muffins. Mine were about 4.5 inches across, compared to 3 inches for store bought ones. If you want them small, make your log longer and cut into 24 pieces. I might do that next time. Remember to split your muffins open with a large fork! And here's a MUST DO: have one hot out of the oven with butter and a little cheese. Heaven!!
