When I was growing up on a farm, my mom always seemed to be making homemade bread...nothing tasted so good! Now I like to make these simple yet delicious muffins for my own family.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 240 calories, 6 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 13 mg cholesterol, 248 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 7 g protein.

Directions

  1. Scald milk in a saucepan; add butter, sugar and salt. Stir until butter melts; cool to lukewarm. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; add to milk mixture. Stir in all-purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour until smooth. Add sesame seeds, poppy seeds and enough remaining whole wheat flour to make a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Roll to 1/3-in. thickness on a cornmeal-covered surface. Cut into circles with a 3-1/2-in. or 4-in. cutter; cover with a towel and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Place muffins, cornmeal side down, in a greased skillet; cook over medium-low heat for 12-14 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Turn and cook about 12-14 minutes or until browned. Cool on wire racks; split and toast to serve. Yield: 12-16 muffins.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2014

These are WONDERFUL! I, too, thought it might be a challenge to make these, but they were easy! After looking on the Internet, I decided to cut them into squares. They cooked easily as directed in a greased skillet. When they were totally cool, I split them using a fork. Had all the nooks and crannies just like the store bought ones!!! This recipe is definitely a keeper.

These turned out great! I was a little unsure about making my own English muffins, but they turned out so well I may never buy them again. My toddler just loved them with peanut butter or jelly.
