Whole Wheat English Muffins

I am always looking for recipes that use more whole wheat flour than white flour and was very glad when I found this muffin recipe.  I love English Muffins and was eager to try it out as soon as possible.
It didn't disappoint me at all. The muffins are a little bit more on the dense side due to the 100 % Whole Wheat flour and if you don't like that just replace some of the whole wheat flour with white flour. Otherwise they were perfect. Easy to make and they freeze very well. My son remarked that he thinks they would taste very well as a school snack with some Nutella ;-)

  • Whole Wheat Muffins
  • (adapted from lifeinrecipes)

  • Ingredients

  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  •  cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour

Begin by dissolving the yeast in 1/4 cup water.

 In a large bowl, combine next four ingredients. Add dissolved yeast and 2 cups flour. Stir to combine, cover and let sit for at least an hour. It will expand in volume and become very bubbly.

Add the butter and begin working in the remaining flour.
(My dough was very soft so I added a little bit more flower until it came together and you are able to roll it out on a floured surface).

Roll the dough out to about 1/2 an inch and cut with a three-inch diameter cutter. Place the rounds onto a foil-lined greased baking sheet and allow to rise another 15 minutes or so. They will almost double in volume in this time.

Preheat your oven to 350F

 Cook them on a griddle or in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet on med-low 5 min each side. You will be amazed as you watch them cook and rise before your very eyes - it's like magic.

Let them brown thoroughly on the first side before flipping them to the second side. They will continue to rise after you've flipped them over. I estimate that they become 3 to 4 times thicker as they cook. I love watching them grow!

6. You will need to put them back on the baking sheet and into a 350F oven for about 5 - 7 minutes longer to finish cooking.
