English Muffins

This is a recipe that I've been eagerly awaiting baking. This is actually a mess in place, believe it or not, I have all the ingredients in this picture. Would someone pick Tammy up off the floor because I know she just fainted.
I love having my own personal kneading machine. Didn't take too long to knead it.

First rise. This was one of the hardest parts of this recipe, waiting for time to do the next step.
Nice and pretty with the rise complete. I think because the kitchen was hot, it took less time than originally determined.
The parchment lined pan waiting for the second rise.
Lovely to look at with the cornmeal.
I used my George Foreman Grill for the first step. I have the one that you can change out the grill pans. Made it very easy to grill the muffins.
The bottoms aren't really very brown. Guess I should have let them go longer on the griddle, but they tasted good.
The crumb shot. Looks great. See the nooks and crannies? I used a fork and split the muffins. I ate one right away, OK, after 30 minutes. Then next one I ate the next morning for breakfast. I have one set aside for tomorrow's breakfast. The rest were tossed into the freezer as frozen assets to be enjoyed in the future.
The English muffins made into egg muffins. I used Egg substitute and the cheese was garlic onion white cheddar cheese. Very yummy. The muffins were very tender. I think I may stop buying English muffins and make them.
I finished up breakfast with watermelon and blueberries.


  1. Very nice crumb shot.
    ...mess in place. lol That's what I call it too.

    Great job.

  2. Thanks Tammy. I froze my english muffins without splitting them with a fork. This morning I pulled out a muffin for breakfast, it was very easy to split with a fork after just 10 minutes of thawing.
