This was my first attempt at making english muffins and I am so very pleased with the results. The dough was beautiful to work with from start to finish.I was surprised that the muffins could be cooked in a skillet without greasing the skillet but none of the muffins stuck to the pan at all. I found out by trial and error that the stove should be on a low to medium-low heat. The muffins burned on a regular medium heat. These are such a treat for my family and me.

Ahhhhh, yeasty and wonderful! I cut them out with a 3" drinking glass and I got 40 muffins. Next time I think I'll make them larger. I used my electric waffle iron/pancake griddle to cook them, and they took about 4-5 minutes per side. I, too, will make these from now on. Thanks for a great recipe!

What a wonderful recipe!!! These were awesome! I was unsure as to how high the heat should be, and after burning the first batch I began to decrease the burner temperature. Finally ended up cooking on 3 for 5 minutes a side. I will make these instead of buying english muffins from now on... Oh, also i think it is important to use a heavy pan as stated, I used a cast iron pot and it worked fine! Thanks!
