Homemade English Muffins
The one thing I have always wanted to try to make was English muffins. I don’t know why, but they are so darn expensive! I meant, it just bread, right?
It can’t be that hard. I finally whipped up a batch and I am pleasantly surprised at how easy they are to make. This homemade english muffin recipe is definitely a money saver.
I mean… you probably already have most of the ingredients sitting in your pantry. We always have cornmeal in the pantry for our homemade cornbread mix, and yeast…. well that is a staple in this family now. 😉
The best part, this English muffins recipe freezes great. You can cook a huge batch and then freeze them. That way you can reheat only the ones you actually need.
Can you put English muffins in the refrigerator?
Yes, you can. Fresh baked English muffins will keep about a week in the fridge.
English muffin ingredients:
- Yeast (you can buy these here)
- warm water
- Corn Meal
How to make homemade english muffins:
Add yeast to warm water and allow to sit.
Warm milk and dissolve sugar in it. Set aside to cool.
Put 3 cups of flour, salt, butter, egg, yeast mix and milk mix and beat until smooth.
Add remaining flour ½ cup at a time until a soft dough forms.
Knead for 5 minutes in mixer or 10 minutes by hand.
Place dough in a oiled bowl cover and let rise until doubled.
Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper and dust each with corn meal.
Punch down risen dough; divide into 18 pieces. Roll each into a ball and gently press down to a 3″ diameter.
Place each on the wax paper and dust tops with corn meal as well.
Cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 200. (optional)
Grease and heat griddle over medium low heat. (I like to use this griddle)
Cook muffins about 10 minutes each side until golden brown.
Transfer cooked muffins to oven to keep warm.
Allow to cool completely before storing.
How do you open English muffins?
Use a fork to gently pry muffins open before using.
It is that easy!

How to freeze these easy homemade english muffins:
Allow the english muffins to cool completely. Then place in a freezer bag and freeze.

Fabulous! I love English muffins for making homemade egg mcmuffins, but I usually but the whole wheat kind (which is even more expensive than the plain Jane English muffins! ). Any advice on how I could turn these into whole wheat English muffins?
The recipe said heat at 200 for 10 minutes until toasty brown. Is this centigrade?
This is a perfect recipe except I do not want to cook in on the grill I want is all cooked in the oven with heat more the 200 degrees
How do you get the dough from the wax paper to the griddle and not loose their shape?
The cornmeal really helps prevent the dough from sticking to the wax paper and I just use a spatula to gently move them to the griddle. Thanks!
I would also like to know if the oven should be 200 Centigrade or Fahrenheit so I can try them. Thanks!
Fahrenheit – Thank you!
How much salt do you put if you’re using salted butter? Or can you use margarine instead of butter?
I would use 1/4 tsp of salt if you use salted butter. I don’t recommend margarine for this recipe – I would use butter. Thanks!
