Step By Step Guide To Making These Quick English Muffins
Isn’t it great to see that butter is back in favour after being blamed for so many health problems?
I mean I’ve never had any issues with butter (in moderation of course).
I just choose to leave it out of my daily cooking and include it mainly in my bread making instead.
Anyway, on with the step by step how to make English Muffins!
This really is a quick recipe.
Simply add the butter to the dry ingredients.
Add in the beaten egg.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
Using your hands (I tried taking a picture of both of my hands kneading the dough together in the bowl here, and clicking the camera remote with my tongue, but gave up for fear of electrocution 😉 ) knead the dough into a ball.
Roll out the dough and cut into circles.
Over a very low heat, dry fry the circles of dough, turning regularly.
Once browned (not burnt) the English muffins are ready to be moved to a wire rack to rest.
Cool a little for a few minutes.
This allows the cooking of the dough inside each muffin to finish.
Then simply cut in half and top with your favourite topping.
Or use them for the delicious healthy eggs benedict recipe!
Wow, September. Where did you come from?
It is just me or are you guys finding that this year has totally flown by too? I mean it’ll soon be Christmas eh? Ha ha.
Folks, just before I head off today, leaving you with this yummy recipe and in anticipation of the recipe on Thursday I just wanted to say thanks!
Thanks for such an amazing response to the giveaway I mentioned earlier, and for just reading, sharing and commenting.
