Seriously, there is NOTHING like fresh English Muffins. This recipe is easy enough to do on a weeknight, you won't even want to put anything on them they are so good...

This makes about 8 large muffins, or 10 medium sized ones.


  • 15g sugar (1 T - heaping)
  • 3g salt (1 t)
  • 15g butter (1 T)
  • 300g milk (1 1/3 C)
  • 10g dried yeast (1 T / 1 packet)
  • 270g flour, sifted (2 C)
  • Vegetable spray or butter


  1. In a large glass bowl, combine sugar, salt, butter, and milk.
  2. Microwave to 115 degrees, then whisk until sugar and salt are dissolved and butter is melted.
  3. Add yeast and whisk and allow the yeast to activate for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the flour and mix thoroughly with a spoon.
  5. Let rest in a warm place, covered, for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat griddle to 325 degrees.
  7. Place English Muffin rings on griddle and spray sides with cooking spray or melt butter into them as shown in the video.
  8. Put roughly 1/4 cup batter into each ring and lightly flatten/spread the batter with a wet spatula.
  9. Cook 5-6 minutes.
  10. Using tongs, flip the rings & muffins and cook for another 5-6 minutes.
  11. Cool on a cooking rack
  12. Yum.


There are several tools that make this recipe easy and much faster cleanup. If you don't have them, we highly recommend for this and other recipes... although none are required:

  1. Kitchen Scale - read this article on how a scale can save you SO much time and reduce the dishes to clean.
  2. English Muffin Rings - Not required, but nice...here is a link to find them on Amazon.
  3. Thermometer - Having a fast, accurate thermometer is really helpful in the kitchen. Here is an article we wrote about options and why to invest in a better quality one.
  4. Griddle. You can make this in a pan, but having a griddle is just super nice. We have a built in griddle shown in the video, but we also use our cast iron one as well.
  5. Bulk Yeast - Not really a tool, but we buy yeast 1lb at a time and store in our freezer. Seriously -- do this.

Eggs Benedict

While these are divine by themselves or with some honey or jam... clearly making Eggs Benedict is something everyone should strive for.

Here is our easy Benedict recipe - be sure to get some of our organic, pasture raised ham to go with it!
