"I made this and oh my gosh! It was sooo good! I gave a loaf to my sister and she loved it too. I love English muffins so this is something I plan to make a lot so that I always have some on hand. I'll never buy them again. The next time I make it, I'm going to divide the dough and make half with cinnamon and raisins and replace cornmeal with a cinnamon sugar mixture."

"Made this recipe for Sunday morning brunch today, easy to make but found the bread way to dense. I'm looking for a lighter texture and prefer it to taste more like the Thomas muffins you purchase, a gluten free version wold be a major plus."

"Fabulous! Especially nice when you want English muffins but don't want to roll, cut, and griddle cook. We slathered ours with butter and homemade blueberry jam. I did make it with 2 cups whole wheat flour and 3 cups white and with powdered milk instead of regular."
