English Muffins

This recipe was definitely a "keeper".  I had never tried to make English muffins but lately we seem to buy a lot of them and if I can make them, of course, it would be cheaper and better. I did a search and used this recipe:
Here is the dough as it rose the second time. I really think that you should leave it to rise a bit longer than 45 minutes the second time because my griddle could only do 6 at a time and the first 6 were really uneven in their thickness but the second and third batch were wider and more even in thickness--could just be my dough rolling ability though.

Here the first batch is cooking:

And here they are when they are all done:
It made 16 English muffins in all and though they do not have the big holes in them like store bought English muffins we thought they tasted better and toasted up crisper. I would definitely make them again.


  1. Not a bad attempt, well done there. Want to share some decent cookie recipe's with me? :D The kind of cookie which is soft and melts in your mouth.

  2. Here is one of my blog post on cookies that I made at Christmas:

  3. I tried to come up with how much these would cost me but it was difficult to figure out how much that little bit of salt and yeast would come up to. The best I can figure is about 50 to 75 cent. I usually spend $2.18 for 12 of them--that makes this way ahead and definitely worth it. You do need time to make them though. One of the things the pioneer women have on we modern women now is that they were home all day and my day has a job mixed in. I am luckier than most to only work part-time though.

  4. Wow, I didn't know you could make those at home! Definitely something to try!

  5. They look so yummy! I will make this for sure, I always like some English muffins with scramble egg and cheese on tip

  6. I've been wantin to make my own English muffins but just havent yet, I have made bagels and we love those.
