Homemade English muffins are so much easier than you think! This recipe is simple and will give you soft, chewy muffins in no time. Enjoy them with butter or your favorite jam!
Some of my favorite breakfast items, when I feel like eating breakfast, are bagels, muffins, English Muffins, and scones. Until today, I had yet to make my own English muffins. This homemade English muffns recipe is sure to be a winner each and every time you make them. And they are actually quite simple.
Mix the ingredients in a stand mixer and you won’t have to do any kneading! Just mix and let rise, then shape and cook. Sounds too easy, right?!
Most of the recipes I’ve seen for homemade English muffins call for an overnight rise. I don’t have the patience for that. Not to mention, every time I let the dough rise in the refrigerator, it fails. I don’t know what I do wrong, but I can never get the dough to work that way. That is why this recipe is made from start to finish, all in the same day.
Traditional English muffins are made on the stovetop and you can certainly do that if you are able to cook them through without over-browning them. However, this recipe calls for a slight browning on the stovetop and then they get finished off in the oven. The muffins turned out perfect this way.
