English Muffin




– 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour if using weights 16 1/4 oz – 1 tablespoon instant yeast or rapid-rise yeast – 2 teaspoon sea salt – 1 1/2 cup milk luke warm, I am using whole raw milk – 2 tablespoons butter melted, unsalted – 1 tablespoon sugar – 5 tablespoons cornmeal – avocado oil spray for spraying the bowl

12 servings

1 hr 30 mins

Step 1

In a stand mixing bowl combine flour, yeast and salt, whisk until everything is combined.

Step 2

In a big glass whisk together milk, butter and sugar. Mix until sugar dissolves.

Step 3

Attach a dough hook and turn it on low speed, slowly pour in milk mixture into flour mixture. Mix for about 2 minutes, crapping down the bowl. After increase the speed to medium-low and knead the dough for 8-10 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer the dough into a large bowl greased with oil (I like to use avocado oil spray for that), cover and let rise for 1-2 hours, in warm place.

Step 5

After divide the dough into 12 pieces. Place each piece in your hand, stretch and pinch edges together, so the top is smooth. Place each ball seam side down onto a baking sheet sprinkled with 3 tablespoons of cornmeal, spacing them 2 inches apart from each other.

Step 6

Cover with greased plastic wrap and add baking sheet on top, press it down, to flatten the balls. Let rise with the baking sheet on top for 30 minutes. Remove the baking sheet and let it rise for 30 more minutes, in a warm place.

Step 7

Preheat the oven to 350F and place the rack on medium-low position. Using a skillet (I like to use my cast iron skillet when making these muffins) preheat it over medium-low heat. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cornmeal over the muffins (4 muffins at a time).

Step 8

Carefully add muffins to the skillet and let it cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden color, flip on the other and cook for another 2-3 minutes (make sure to not press on the muffin tops).

Step 9

Transfer golden muffins onto a baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until muffins are cooked thru. Let cool, cut in half and enjoy!
