Breadbeckers® Whole Wheat English Muffins

"These scrumptious muffins are easy and fun-to-make and require only a skillet. The recipe is from the BreadBeckers, Inc. family company in Woodstock, GA that provides classes and wonderful products to home bakers. I added only the flax meal component for added health benefits."

Ready In:
12 muffins




  • In a large bowl, combine water, milk, honey and salt.
  • Thoroughly beat 2 Cups of the flour, the flax meal and the yeast into the milk mixture to form a loose batter.
  • Cover and let the "sponge" rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  • Beat in the softened butter.
  • Knead in the remaining flour forming a smooth, soft dough for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Turn the dough out onto a surface sprinkled with cornmeal and roll to a 1/2" thickness.
  • Cut into 3-4 inch rounds. Let these rest on parchment paper or a slightly greased cookie sheet until doubled (usually just a few minutes).
  • Carefully lift the rounds with a pancake turner oto a hot, well-buttered (I find grapeseed oil works best) skillet or griddle at about 350 degrees.
  • Cook until lightly brown, turning once.
  • Cool slightly and slice in half. Toast the halves, if desired.

  1. Doubled for 3 dozen small muffins. I didn't have the flax, but did everything else as written. Used hard white wheat berries. Excellent!
  2. Easy recipe. Wonderful outcome. This is a keeper. No more store bought. It uses ingredients I have on hand.


Hi there! I love to cook and entertain, preferably vegetarian gourmet. I lean toward either the quick and easy recipe or the complex, extravagant recipe depending on my cooking audience. Either works for me as long as it's meatless, healthful and delicious... and there is SO much that is exactly that! I'm a wife and mom, a business-owner, long-time vegetarian, recipe creator, food knowledge advocate, yoga fan and freelance writer. I love giving small cooking classes and researching and interviewing for my podcast. My first nonfiction book is near completion and discusses etiquette, recipes and lessons learned about vegetarianism.
