English Muffins

I was craving some breakfast sandwiches, but I seriously hate spending good money on those muffins. Luckily, I have time to spend making some.

1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
7 gr traditional yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup melted shortening
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Heat the milk till it bubbles, stir in the sugar and let it cool. Pour the yeast into the water, and let it grow for about... 10 min. Once that's done, combine the milk/sugar, yeast/water with the melted shortening, and combine with 3 cups of flour. Add the salt. Keep mixing, slowly adding the remaining flour till it's a nice soft dough. You might not need all the flour!

Cover it up and let it rise for about half an hour. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch, and cut rounds with whatever means you have. I used a Motts Clamato glass.

Set these out, and let them rise for 1/2 an hour.

Heat a frying pan on med heat, and fry the muffins for 10 min on each side.


Tomorrow, the thrilling conclusion of the muffins.
