Homemade English Muffins


I dug out my
  Oklahoma pastry cloth the other day, and made a new recipe  - Homemade English Muffins (click for recipe).

I was searching the Internet and found the recipe at a blog called : Edible Existence.


 
 This recipe requires the dough to rise two times - once in the bowl and....

..and once on a tray.  The weather was so humid I took advantage of setting these out on the front porch.  It was one of those weird days where the inside of the house was cool, but humid outside.  

These bake in a skillet with a light coat of oil.  It was nice not to heat up the kitchen with the oven too.  They were delicious and this recipe is a "keeper."

Great minds think alike! LOL! Finding a good recipe for English muffins has been on my "grasscatcher" list for a long time now. Thank you for doing the work for me! LOL! Now, all I have to do is make them!

Those look delicious! Definitely much better looking than the store bought ones. I am not a fan of English muffins, generally, but I use to make them years ago for my kids and we all loved them. I bet they went fast, didn't they?

Those are odd days when they happen like that, but so nice that it is cool in the house. Good you could set yours out on the porch. My cats and chickens would have the dough eaten up before it had completely raised!
