Yummy easy bread. I did add an egg and 3 tbsp butter. I used the idea to boil water in the micro and then put the bread in to rise with the micro off & it rose in 45 min. Easier to make than the muffins. I tried to use the dough hook but would recommend the paddle to mix in the stand mixer. Enjoy!

Great flavor, but I very heavy. The dough was very thick and stiff. I did two versions, 1 loaf and then made 8 muffins. They were big. For the muffins I fried them up and used a lid to get the centers to cook. These have great flavor and sizzled in the toaster. I think this has spoiled the family and they will not look at store bought the same. I read the longer you let the dough rise the more holes. I will keep trying to get the right texture. I read on another recipe to heat up 1 cup of water in the microwave, then let to dough rise in the hot/moist microwave(not on). This worked really well.

I was looking for an English muffin recipe and came across this, figured I would give it a try. I halved the recipe and made a couple of modifications, instead of spooning the loaf into two pans I divided the dough into 8 and made them into balls (when handling the dough use lots of flour) I then flattened them, placed them on a parchment lined baking sheet. I let rise for the 45 minutes and then baked for 15 minutes. They are a bit heavier then your standard English muffin but tasted just as good.
