Soaked Spelt Engish Muffins

Soaked Spelt Engish Muffins created by Lalaloula

Yum. Healthy spelt based english muffins. I found this recipe on the blog Taste is Trump: http://goodlookingcook.blogspot.com/2011/01/soaked-english-muffins.html English muffins are in the same category as most bread products. Like pitas and tortillas, it is impossible to find a store bought variety made with healthful ingredients, properly prepared that tastes good. These are great to just eat with butter and honey, or make little sandwiches with.

    These turned out well with slight tweaks. I used my electric griddle that I brushed with butter. My cooktime was longer with it being covered and with frequent flips. Total cooktime was about 15 minutes but toasting afterwards was helpful. I’ll definitely make again!

    What should the dough look like after mixing the flour and wet ingredients? After it rises? Does it rise? There are a lot of details left out.

    These are really easy and taste great! I made it into 4 large muffins for sandwiches- they were a little too big- will make 5 next time, as they had trouble cooking through. Greased the non-stick pan with a little butter, they did not stick at all. Cook on med-low with the lid on 5-6 min, flip and cook 5-6 more minutes with the lid off.

    Extremely dry and they stuck like crazy. I won't make again.

    This is a very, very yummy recipe tastewise! The muffins have a nutty pretzel-like flavour and are really, really good for breakfast. The dough was super easy to work with and the texture of the muffins was soft and thick, which we really enjoyed.<br/>However I cannot give the full 5 stars as I had quite some trouble baking these in my dry skillet. They stuck like crazy and I could only manage to bake through one of them this way. The others I had to scrape out of the skillet and then I just reshaped them and popped them into the oven for 25 minutes at 180°C. That worked nicely and they puffed up quite a bit. The crust wasnt as good as the one from the pan (the darker coloured pic), but all in all they were great, too.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this easy and healthy recipe with us, Kat! Ill make these again for sure!<br/>Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #31 February 2011.
