Kitchen Dictionary: English muffin

A rather flat, round "muffin" made from a soft yeast dough and baked on a griddle, causing the side cooked first to be flatter and firmer. English muffins are 3-4 inches in diameter and approximately 1 inch high; and are available commercially in many varieties: sourdough, whole-wheat, raisin, cinnamon and cornmeal.

plural: English muffins


Season: available year-round

How to prepare: Fork-split to produce an uneven surface with peaks and craters rather than slicing in half with a knife, then toast.
