English Muffins: Submitted by: Bonnie | Date Added: 26 Mar 2011
Listed in: Bread and Rolls

1 cup Sourdough Starter**
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp. honey
4 cups white flour (if doing a whole wheat version, use 3 cups only)
1 scant tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. coarse salt
butter for grilling, flour for kneading (very little), waxed paper

** Use our own Sourdough Starter

Cooking Instructions

Mix starter, honey, and milk until smooth. Add flour a cup at a time, mixing with a spoon. You don't want a dough, you want it wet looking. Do not knead. Leave in the bowl, cover and wait until it has doubled. Time will vary based on elevation and temperature.

Stir down. Sprinkle the baking soda and coarse salt over dough and work in. Only add enough flour to roll out (the amount of flour you use matters - too much and you don't get the big air pockets that is the signature of this recipe). Knead it on a floured surface, only adding enough flour to keep it from sticking to the counter or your hands. You want it to spread out over the counter by itself when you leave it alone. Be gentle in kneading, keeping the bubbles in it. Roll the dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut out with a cup to get the English muffin shape. I've found it best to roll in sections, as the dough tends to want to pull back too thick while you're working.

Place each English muffin on waxed paper that has cornmeal on it, keeping space in between each one to double and not touch (or it will stick). Sprinkle tops with cornmeal, cover with more waxed paper, and leave until doubled/risen well. Time will vary based on elevation and temperature.

Heat griddle/skillet over low or medium low heat. (I recommend doing two skillets at a time). Put a little butter in the pan and immediately put an English muffin on top of it. Cook one side until done, about 4 minutes. You should see the air bubbles coming to the top. Flip and cook again. Do not redo a side, one time only. Cool on wire racks. (Important! Cooling on a plate or stacked makes them a little doughy.)
