Description

Making English muffins from scratch is so incredibly simple! I don’t know why more people aren’t doing it. These are leaps and bounds better than anything you can get in a package.

Ingredients

  • 3-⅔ cups All-purpose Flour, Plus More For Kneading
  • 1 envelope Active Dry Yeast (or Instant Yeast), 0.25 Ounce Packet
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 cup Lukewarm Water
  • ⅔ cups Plain Yogurt
  • ⅓ cups Semolina Flour, For Sprinkling
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil

Preparation

In a large bowl whisk together flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Add water and yogurt, and mix into a soft dough. Knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth, adding more flour if it gets sticky. Let dough rest for 5 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface roll dough out to a thickness of about ¾ inch. Cut out 12-16 circles with a 3 inch round cutter. You can re-roll excess dough and cut more circles until all the dough is finished. Sprinkle a baking sheet with the semolina flour and slide the muffins around in the semolina to coat the bottoms. Cover with a damp towel and let them rise in a warm place for about an hour or until almost doubled in size.

Heat a flat griddle pan until hot and brush with oil. Add the muffins and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 12 minutes, six minutes on each side, until firm and golden brown. Turn only once. Serve with butter and jam!

Oh these are good! We should have cooked ours a bit longer as I think we didn’t have our griddle heat high enough so they ended up a bit doughy (which I like but not exactly English muffin-like) in the middle. We got so many for so few ingredients! Thank you!

Yum! I made these last night; a very successful recipe. The dough was easy to work with, and excellent instructions on how to cook in the skillet. I ate one hot last night, and am eating one this morning as a breakfast sandwich. Delicious. I’ll definitely be making these often. Thank you for sharing your recipe; these are SO MUCH better than store bought. (I used corn meal instead of semolina and it worked just fine.)
