Idaho part II

Grandma spoiled us with delicious food.  She made waffles in a special waffle iron from England for breakfast one morning.  And for lunch one day we feasted on home made English Muffins

  1. Silly me– I’ve never thought about making homemade english muffins! Do you have a recipe to share? Sounds fun, and looks delish!

  2. So here’s the English Muffin Recipe:

    In a bowl, dissolve yeast, and sugar in warm water and let it bubble up,
    1 cup warm water
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1 tablespoon dry yeast

    Add:
    1 cup warm milk
    1/4 cup Canola oil
    1 teaspoon salt and about 2 cups of the flour. Mix together and let rest for a few minutes.

    Add 2 or more cups flour until you have a soft dough. Empty dough onto a greased pastry sheet, shape into a large ball, cover with a towel and let rise for about 20-30 minutes.

    Punch down and roll out about 1/2 inch thick. Cut rounds with a biscuit cutter, drinking glass or empty can. Let rise 20-30 minutes.
    Heat greased griddle to 300 degrees. Cook muffins 10 minutes then turn over and cook another 10 minutes.
