    Oh yum! English muffins are the best – and yours couldn’t have turned out any better. They look just like the real day. Will definitely have to try them sometime. Oh, and happy belated birthday :).

    Happy (belated) birthday!

    One note on English muffins – try buttermilk instead of whole milk – it gives them a little more traditional ‘tang’ and acidifies the dough, which makes the yeast happier. Also, increasing the hydration a bit and letting the dough rise a little more should help give you a lighter muffin.

    Happy belated birthday! I have only made homemade english muffins once but I really need to get at it again. Enjoy that you used a griddle. I used a skillet and it wasn’t big enough for them all.

    I love English Muffins! And yours look so good…like legit little English Muffins! I’ve made English Muffin bread before and that is SO good. Especially toasted with some butter. I bet your recipe in loaf form would be good too!

    Happy belated birthday!! These guys look perfect! Homemade english muffins have been on my to-make list for a while now, but for some reason I thought they took forever to make! Glad to hear they were easy AND delicious!

    I love how you placed all measurements such as grams, so hard to find on Pinterest. I look forward to trying these soon. X

    Is the cornmeal to keep them from sticking or is it just a nice to have because store bought ones have cornmeal? I’m allergic to corn and would love to try these without the cornmeal.

      Both! You can try just using flour to prevent sticking 🙂

    This looks great! I’m excited to use them for egg mcmuffins 🙂

    Question, do I have to use whole milk or can I use 1% or almond milk?

    Living in the UK, there are lots of muffins in the shops. Most are not good, filled with chemicals and preservatives, too sweet or too doughy.

    I’ve made my own before, but the Cardiff Devils could have used them as hockey pucks! Lately, my wife has been looking for a nice healthy wholemeal muffin in the shops, with no success, so I’ve been looking at loads of recipes. These muffins look so good, I can’t wait to try them!

      Haha! Let me know what you and your wife think if you give the recipe a go 🙂

    is it possible to use only whole wheat flour instead of split of AP and whole wheat? thanks!
