I was going to say I love English muffins but at different times, I love different things. I love biscuits and crunchy toast and . . English muffins. I’ve been wanting to make them for several weeks and just never got around to it.
I was going to make sourdough English muffins and I have to feed the starter in the morning, then make the dough late in the evening, leave it out overnight, then bake them the next morning. I kept forgetting to get started in the morning . . I’d think about it something around noon and that was really too late so finally, I remembered.
I don’t know if you can see the clock but it was after 9 p.m. when I finally got them to cooking.
I was so strong and didn’t eat one til late . . after midnight . . when I was putting them away and I couldn’t help myself. They’re so good.
The ones on the back row . . the dough needed to rest and wouldn’t roll out thin enough so I just made fat muffins for those last three. That’s ok. Fat isn’t so bad, right?

Is that a special cast iron pan for cooking English muffins?
No. Just any cast iron or heavy skillet will work.

Beautiful! So sorry to ask this because you’ve probably already linked to the recipe you used, but I can’t find it in past posts. Can you tell us the recipe you used because your pictures are making my mouth water like nothing else I’ve seen lately! Thank you.

This is the recipe I used for the sourdough English Muffins.

Well, Judy. Once again you are widening my horizons! This is another website I hadn’t come across. I am definitely trying several of her recipes. Thank you so much for sharing. (PS you, Vince and your family are in my prayers for healing, safety, and peace of mind.)

Oh no – we’re even more alike than I thought. Why “toast” tost if it’s not going to be crunchy! 🙂 Same way with bagels – they have to be toasted to a crunch.
Yes! My husband thinks toast is basically warmed bread. Pfft. I have a friend who always orders her English muffins to be “extra crispy.” A sister once claimed that toasting bread made it “more digestible.”

Those look so good! Nothing like what you get in the store that are as hard as Frisbees!
