Homemade English Muffins

English Muffins are my favourite to enjoy Egg Benedict on Sundays as brunch. I’ve been wanting to make English muffins since a long time and couldn’t get my hands on it. I made it yesterday and it’s so tasty, soft and I shall make it often. English Muffins are an American style of food introduced by an English Ex-pat in NYC. It is time consuming but the end result is delicious

Preparation time-10 mins, Cooking time-20hrs

Serves -2 people

Ingredients

2.5 cups Refined flour or Maida

1/4 tsp instant yeast

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup water

2 Tbsp butter

Method

In a big bowl add Refined flour or Maida and in part of the bowl add salt and mix and in another part of the bowl add instant yeast and mix. The reason is salt and yeast don’t get along together so once mixed separately and then if all mixed together the bread will be done well. In a pan warm milk, add water and then add the butter. Just warm to melt the butter and not heat. Set aside. Gradually add the warm milk to mix the flour. Mix with a spoon. Don’t add the milk all at once. Once done cover with cling wrap and cover with tea towel for 18 hours to help to double in size. Next day the dough would have risen double. Put on the kitchen top some flour and then gentile add the dough. Sprinkle some more flour and cover with a tea towel for 10 mins for the gluten to work. After 10 mins lay the dough on a clean kitchen top and spread a little. Add to a baking tray and cover for 45 mins. After 45 mins make balls with a scone cutter of 1” thickness. Set aside. 2.5 cups flour will yield 10 muffin bread. In a pan add three muffin breads and roast for 5 mins on one side and flip sides. Roast for 2.5 mins on another side. The Muffins are done. Enjoy with Egg Benedict or just butter & jam
