Making English muffins at home is much easier than you think—all you need is a few staple ingredients and a bit of time.
Why This Recipe Works
For quicker English muffins that didn't sacrifice flavor or the requisite nooks and crannies, we needed to use a few tricks. We used honey and warm milk for flavor and to help jump-start the yeast, speeding up the rising process. Bread flour provided some extra protein, resulting in chewier muffins. Finally, we seared the muffins on both sides in a skillet before finishing them in the oven. Be sure not to slice these open with a knife; you want to split them with a fork to ensure the perfect texture.
