Master of (English) Muffins

RECIPE – Homemade English Muffins
The Vegetarian Librarian

3 cups of AP flour
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon corn oil
1 cup of unsweetened soymilk

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and soymilk. Mix by hand or in food processor until dough forms. If dough is very dry, add more soymilk one tablespoon at a time. Dough should not be dry and crumbly nor wet. Form into a ball.

Lightly oil a bowl, place dough in bowl and cover with damp cloth or plastic wrap. Let dough rise for 2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.

Uncover the dough, deflate risen dough by punching down. Knead dough a few times and reshape into a ball. Recover and let the dough rest 15 minutes on a flat surface like a cookie sheet.

Take a handful of dough, flatten into a disk about 4″ in diameter and place on a flat surface. Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes or until they puff up slightly.

Heat an ungreased, flat griddle or skillet over medium heat for 10 minutes. Sprinkle lightly with cornmeal and lay the muffins on the pan. Cook on each sides for 10 minutes. Muffins should be slightly browned when they are done.

Split with fork, enjoy hot off the pan, toasted, or topped with anything that comes in a jar!
