English Muffins

The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge: No 12. English Muffins

It's time for another installment of my attempt to bake my way through Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book, The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread.

The twelfth recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is English Muffins.

The beauty of this challenge is the opportunities it gives me to make things I never thought I'd ever make, like English Muffins. I've always liked English muffins but if given the choice I'd always get a bagel. Now, I'm all turned around on them. I heart English Muffins. :)

These English Muffins were a bit of an ordeal to make but worth every second of effort. If you've never had a fresh English Muffin, topped with butter, you haven't lived. Enjoy!

Show some love to the other challenge participants in this challenge.



Up next: Focaccia!

These are stunning, my dear. And if they taste as good as they look, then... They're making me seriously hungry for my mom's English muffin bread. One of the best bread memories of my childhood...
