English Muffins
May 23, 2010

Ok, these are definitely NOT English Muffins. They are buns. Yeast raised buns. And, it's a decent recipe for buns. Cooking buns on a pan is unusual, but makes for a nice crust. English muffins are very different -- they are a bit chewey, and they have a coarser crumb with lots of big holes that leave all the bumps and ridges that make them very crispy when toasted. To acheive this, the dough is usually very soft like a batter, and it contains both yeast and -- added near the end of the raising -- some baking soda. They also contain eggs or egg whites to help make them chewy. Sorry, but this is simply misnamed/categorized. I made this though. It produces nice buns for hamburgers, etc., and they toast like white bread.
