This recipe was given to me many years ago by the county Extension service. I love the muffins' hearty taste and light texture. If you're cooking for one or two, they keep well in the refrigerator or the freezer.

  4. Bake at 375° for 8 minutes or until bottom is browned. Turn muffins over; bake 7 minutes longer or until second side is browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Store in the refrigerator. To serve, split with a fork and toast. Yield: about 10 muffins.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2010

"These were pretty easy to make but there weren't airy holes that I like in an English muffin. I only bake these when I'm in another country where I can't buy them off the shelf. I'll make them again but not make them as large this time. They really grow and seem heavy to eat."
