Do you know where I can find a kind of tool to make English Muffins? I have a really great recipe for English Muffin bread, but would like to try to turn the recipe into muffins. Thanks for all your updates and news.
I'm posting a recipe for English Muffins for you to try. You don't need any special equipment. To bake English muffins, you simply fry them on a griddle. I'm not sure if English Muffin Bread dough would work for English muffins. I think it depends on whether it is actually a dough or a batter. I'm recalling that my recipe makes a type of pourable batter?? Anyhow, I hope you'll have success with either recipe you decide to try.
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Let cool until lukewarm. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the milk, yeast mixture, oil, and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add salt and rest of flour, or enough to make a soft dough. Knead. Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise.
Punch down. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut rounds with biscuit cutter, drinking glass, or empty tuna can. Sprinkle waxed paper with cornmeal and set the rounds on this to rise. Dust tops of muffins with cornmeal also. Cover and let rise 1/2 hour.
Heat greased griddle. Cook muffins on griddle about 10 minutes on each side on medium heat. Keep baked muffins in a warm oven until all have been cooked. Allow to cool and place in plastic bags for storage. To use, split and toast. Great with orange butter, or cream cheese and jam.
