Before you get your panties twisted please understand that I don't think all English people are snobby. However, they do snobby right. If a snobby American and a snobby English person were have a confrontation you know who would win don't you. The English.
So you know I have been suffering without a stove right? Only have to wait till Monday and then I can make things I have been dying to try out. The mail man has been bringing me cook books lately and I need to share them with you. Last week I got a cookbook in the mail called The Everything Bread Cookbook. But then my P.O.S. stove decided to conk out on me. What am I going to do with a bread book but no stove hmm? That's when I came across the recipe for English Muffins. Perfect BECAUSE I can do it on a griddle....YAY! I have been aching to do more recipes out of it. I don't think I will ever have to buy any bread cookbook...this thing has all sorts of recipes for AUTHENTIC artisan breads. I've been having a field day buying specialty flours. Want it? It's really affordable for only $12.00.
Snobby English Muffins
by The Everything Bread Cookbook
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 tbs granulated sugar
- 1 3/4 tsp of dry active yeast
- 1 tbs unsalted butter
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- In large bowl, combine water, sugar, and yeast. Mix well and set aside until foamy, about 10 minutes.
- Add butter, salt, and flour. Beat together 8-10 minutes until a smooth batter is formed. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to rise in a warm spot until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
- Heat griddle over high heat. Test griddle by sprinkling on a little water. If it sizzles and evaporates, its ready. Lower the heat to medium0low. Place muffin rings on the griddle and fill them half way with batter. Cover loosely with foil and cook until muffins are browned on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Using a spatula or tongs, flip over each muffin and ring. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Cool completely before splitting and serving.
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!
