Whole Wheat English Muffins
English muffins are one of those things that you just have to make homemade. It’s so much cheaper at about 10 cents a piece. And they’re really not hard at all. They’re actually pretty fun to make.
The English muffin texture is definitely unique. It is dense and has large air pockets instead of the tiny, uniform ones we’re used to in regular bread. While the dough for English muffins is very similar to regular bread dough, it’s actually the quick cooking on a griddle that creates the texture we’re all familiar with.
And when you make them yourself, you can make them out of whole wheat or spelt flour to add a little more nutrition to your breakfast or snack.
We sell these awesome little English muffin rings in our store. They’re one of our biggest sellers, so there’s no doubt plenty of people are making their own English muffins. They’re versatile too. Not only can you use them as English muffin molds, but also as pancake molds, egg molds, or biscuit cutters. If you look toward the top of the photo, you’ll find that the egg in the sandwich was cooked using an English muffin ring to make an egg that’s the perfect size and shape for an egg sandwich.
