Homemade English Muffins

Author Nicole Burkholder


  • 1-⅓ cups milk warm but not hot
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2-½ teaspoons 1 package active dry yeast
  • 2 cups flour
  • Pan spray
  • Cornmeal white or yellow, doesn't matter


  • In a medium bowl, combine the warm milk, sugar, salt and oil.
  • Sprinkle the yeast on top and allow to activate. Mix in the yeast and make sure it's dissolved.
  • Add the flour to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes to rise.
  • Preheat an electric griddle or skillet to 300 degrees. Place mason jar rings on the pan, spray with pan spray and dust with cornmeal.
  • Scoop 6-7 tablespoons of dough into each ring. Place a sheet pan over the top of the griddle (not touching the rings.)
  • Cook for 5 minutes, sprinkle with cornmeal and then use tongs to flip. Cover again and cook for 5 more minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove the rings and cool on a wire rack.
  • Serve as is, or toasted with butter and jam!
