I been wanting to make these for a long time.  I made them last week.  They came out really good, and tasted just like english muffins you get in the store.





here the recipe
1 3/4 cups (14 ounces) milk, warm
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) butter
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons (7/8 ounce) granulated sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 to 4 1/4 cups (17 to 18 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour
2 teaspoons instant yeast

Place the ingredients in the pan of your bread machine following the manufacturer's instructions. Use the "dough" or "manual" setting. After the cycle is complete, transfer the dough to a cornmeal-sprinkled surface and roll it out until it's about 1/2-inch thick. Cut out circles with a floured 3-inch cutter. Re-roll and cut out the leftover dough. Cover the muffins with a damp cloth and let rest for about 20 minutes.

Heat a frying pan or griddle to very low heat. Do not grease, but sprinkle with cornmeal. Cook four muffins at a time, cornmeal side down first, for about 7 minutes a side.

Check after about 3 to 4 minutes to see that the muffins are browning gently and are neither too dark nor too light; if they seem to be cooking either too fast or too slowly, adjust the temperature of your pan or griddle.

When the muffins are brown on both sides, transfer them to a wire rack to cool, and proceed with the rest. If you have two frying pans (or a large griddle), you'll be better able to keep up with your rising muffins. Yield: 16 muffins.

Oh my god I love muffins! They're one of the foods from home I really miss. Would you make this English girl a very happy dinosaur and share your recipe? They look utterly perfect!

Oh, that sounds do-able. However, I don't have a breadmaker. Would mixing the dough with my stand mixer or by hand work? Does it need time to rise and then be knocked back before rolling out? Sorry for the barrage of questions, I'm kind of excited by how easy they sound (for some reason I'd always assumed they would be a complex little beastie to cook).

You can make English muffins with a regular stand mixer, or even by hand.  I haven't used this exact recipe (the one we've used came from a cookbook), but ours turned out very well.  You'd want to let it rise a bit before you roll it out and cut it, obviously, because that's part of what the bread maker does, but it shouldn't be too hard to do.

LadyDeath, yours look phenomenal!  I like how puffy they are - ours turned out a bit flatter, but I think our yeast was old.

Thanks.  This was the first time making them.

these look amazing, and I figure the recipe is adaptable to make something my local supermarket stopped making years ago: spiced raisin ones!

Wow! They look amazing!

As an English person I have actually NEVER thought of making muffins until today (and now I sooooo want to!)  Cheesy
