  • ·
    1 egg
  • ·
    about 4 cups all purpos flour
  • ·
    about 1/2 cup cornmeal

  • ·
    2 cups all purpose flour
  • ·
    2 tbs sugar
  • ·
    2 tsp salt
  • ·
    1 envelope active dry yeast

  • ·
    1 and 3/4 cups milk
  • ·
    1/4 cup water
  • ·
    1 tbs butter or margarine

How to Make English Muffins


  1. In large bowl of mixer stir together 2 cups flour, the sugar, salt, and dry yeast. Set aside
  2. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120 - 130 degrees). Add gradually to yeast-flour mixture and beat at medium speed 2 minutes.
  3. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat at high speed 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in just enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, adding more remaining flour if dough is sticky.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down.
  6. Cover and let rise again until double, about 45 minutes. Punch down.
  7. On lightly floured surface roll out 1/2 inch thick. With 3-1/4-inch round cutter (or clean tuna can opened at both ends) cut out muffins.
  8. Sprinkle cookie sheets lightly with cornmeal. Add muffins about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with additional cornmeal. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  9. Heat lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. With wide metal spatula carefully remove muffins (do not compress or puncture muffins or they will collapse) to griddle.
  10. Bake over very low heat 8 to 10 minutes on each side until light brown. (muffins should sound hollow when tapped.)
  11. Cool on racks. To serve, split with fork tines; toast.
