Mountain of Muffins

Have a craving for an English Muffin with eggs in the morning, but living on a budget you can’t afford to buy that certain brand with all the “nooks and crannies”? Well crave no more ’cause here’s a simple, easy to make English Muffin recipe that produces a mountain of muffin and saves you dough at the same time. To make it ultra easy, I mix the ingredients in my bread machine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/4 cup melted shortening
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

Warm the milk and water together in a small saucepan, remove from heat and pour into the pan of the bread machine. Add remaining ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed. Select the “Dough” program and set back while your bread machine does the mixing work. Watch that your dough doesn’t over rise in your machine as it will make quite a mess and could damage the machine.

When the dough has doubled, punch down. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut rounds with biscuit cutter, drinking glass, or empty tuna can. Sprinkle waxed paper with cornmeal and set the rounds on this to rise. Dust tops of muffins with cornmeal also. Cover and let rise 1/2 hour.

Heat greased griddle. Cook muffins on griddle about 10 minutes on each side on medium heat. Keep baked muffins in a warm oven until all have been cooked. Allow to cool and place in plastic bags for storage. To use, split and toast. Great with eggs, or with home made jam or even just butter.
