English muffins are so easy to make. Once you see how easy and tasty this is, you will never purchase another store bought English muffin.
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tsp. instant yeast
  • 4 cups bread flour (may need more depending on where you live and the season)
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  1. Add warm milk to bowl of electric mixer. You can also use your bread machine on the "manual" mode.
  2. Next, add yeast, salt, sugar and give a few licks with a whisk
  3. Add egg and melted butter.
  4. With dough hook on, start adding flour ½ cup at the time. Do this until a soft ball forms.
  5. Turn dough ball onto a surface sprinkled with corn meal.
  6. Roll out dough to about ½ inch thick and use a round cookie cutter to cut out dough. I use a 3 inch cutter.
  7. Re-roll dough and keep cutting until all dough is used. Place on cookie sheet
  8. Once all cut out, cover cookie sheet with damp, warm cloth for 20 to 30 minutes.
  9. While dough is resting, start warming your griddle. I use an electric one on about 300 degrees. You can also use a skillet.
  10. Do not grease griddle/skillet. Just dust with corn meal
  11. Now sprinkle dough with cornmeal and place on griddle. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side on a low heat. Check ½ to make sure that aren't over browning.
  12. Cool completely on wire rack.
