Quick Handy Breakfast:English Muffins

Posted on 20 March 2011 by noelskitchen

Summary: These English muffins are a bit crispier than the soft, store-bought kind, but they certainly have a fresher homemade flavor.

Ingredients:

6 Tablespoons water
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup milk
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
cornmeal

Directions:

  • Disolve the baking soda in the water.
  •  Put the water and remaining ingredients except cornmeal in bread machine in the above order listed. Set the bread machine for dough cycle stage. Press Start.
  • Sprinkle cornmeal onto a baking sheet.
  • When dough is ready, remove it and punch it down. Cut in half.
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out first half dough to 3/8 inch thick.
  • With a round cookie cutter or cut in seal, cut out 3-inch rounds.
  • Put the rounds on the cornmeal-covered baking sheet, then turn to coat both sides.
  • Repeat with second half of dough.
  • Cover muffins and let rise for 45 minutes.
  • Set griddle to moderate heat level (350-375 degrees). Cook until muffin bottoms are nicely browned, then turn to cook the other side.

*Cooking time will vary from 6 to 10 minutes per side according to the temperature of your griddle. Let cool on wire rack before slicing.

Noel’s Quick Notes: The easiest way to make these is with a 3-inch round cookie cutter and a griddle. If you don’t have a griddle, a large skillet will work just fine. Because of the time it takes to make the English muffins, I usually make them on the weekend and freeze in ziploc freezer bags until ready to use.

Variations:White cornmeal or Yellow cornmeal can be used in this recipe.

Makes: 15-18 English muffins

Cooking Time: 6-10 minutes; griddle temperatures vary.

Prep Time: 55 minutes (includes putting ingredients together, resting and rising time)

Total Cook Time: 1 hour 7-10 minutes

Meal Type: Breakfast

My Family Rating: 5 stars

    A friend on mine is always making homemade english muffins, but won’t give me her recipe. I think I’ll give it a try. Do I need to have a bread machine?

    Nancy, Please do, they are really easy to make. Great question. You do not need a bread machine for this recipe. You can make in a mixing bowl, cover and let dough rise; cut into muffins, let rise again and bake. I use the bread machine for recipes like this because it allow me to work on other recipes or activities while it’s kneading and rising. It’s like having another hand in the kitchen. :)
