Last week Rosalie and I spent a morning making English muffins. She helped me measure out the flour, she tried to help with rolling out the dough, and was really good at stamping out the muffins. I don’t own a straight-sided round cutter so we decided to make sweetheart muffins!
Baking with yeast is my least favourite type of baking – I hate kneading (I have feeble hands) and my dough never seems to rise, which ultimately leads to dense bread. But I made some pretty successful hot cross buns earlier in the year, so I was hopeful the muffins would turn out well.
Did you know that you fry the dough? I didn’t, but I do now!
The muffins were definitely denser than shop muffins but were really delicious toasted and spread with butter.
