Drumroll Please........................

We have nooks and crannies!!


I was inspired to make English Muffins by Pete over at Pete Bakes, another DC Blogger. And, as always, I used dough from Artisan Bread. This past week I made up a batch of the Light Wheat dough. Following Pete's directions, I formed the dough into balls. I decided to just make four muffins today.


After letting them rise for an hour I transferred them to my wonderful 8" Scanpan skillet. And cooked them for 5 minutes on each side.

After that they were popped into the oven for another five minutes. You need to let them cool for 30 minutes. Then poke a fork around the edge all the way around and care..ful...ly pry the halves apart. Perfection!!

I also made a baguette to use for tonights dinner - but I'll post about that later!

Hi Judy! I'm Jeff Hertzberg, one of the co-authors of Artisan Bread in Five. These muffins look great... you're giving me ideas for our next book (on whole grain 5-minute breads). Hmm.

I love the idea of making English muffins. They look beautiful and light. The shop bought ones are always so tough. Maybe I'll give them a try.

English muffins are perfect for butter. Little pockets of goodness. I have to try your recipe. Looks easy. I make English Muffin bread and it tastes a lot like the real thing. Great job on these.
