I love English muffins. I eat them quite often. Usually toasted, with a poached egg on top. Or maybe some strawberry jam. They freeze and defrost easily. I have my favorite kind at Trader Joe’s. These are all good things.
I subscribe to FoodPress, a WordPress subsidiary that features various recipes and photos as posted on WordPress (since there happen to be a lot of food-related blogs hosted on WP). A recipe for Homemade English Muffins made with (mostly) whole wheat flour popped up in my Reader one day, and I just had to try it.
The end result was really, really good. Great, in fact. I ended up with 19 muffins (as opposed to 10-12, as noted in the above recipe) – I’m guessing my English muffin rounds were a bit smaller than Channeling Contessa’s, or my dough rose more/differently, or whatever. Either way, I can’t argue with extra English muffins.
