English Muffins

English muffins are one of those foods that I never considered making.  I just always thought you had to buy them in a bag.  But in my quest to discover how to make everything I found these.  One of my friends, who is a master at all yeast breads, shared her recipe with me.  I love the chewy texture and crevices for honey butter!  YUM….my mouth is watering.

Here is what you need:

1/2 Cup milk

3 Cups All-purpose flour

2 TBS sugar

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/4 tsp yeast

1/2 cup warm water

4 TBS melted butter

Toss your ingredients into your bread machine on the dough cycle.  (If you don’t have one, mix the ingredients and knead for about 15 minutes.  Cover and let rise for an hour.)

20130717-222438.jpgTear your ball into about a dozen pieces.  Form each one into a ball.  Let rise for about 30 minutes.

20130717-222448.jpgPlace your risen dough into a skillet on medium heat.  Cook for about 5 minutes.

Flip them over and cook the other side for an additional 5 minutes.  Place them on a baking sheet and cook in the oven on 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
