We eat a lot of English muffins in our house – they’re perfect with scrambled or poached eggs, eggs benedict, smashed avocado or just your favourite jam, peanut butter or Vegemite… and of course, lots of butter!

When it seemed like we were buying pack after pack at the supermarket, I decided it was time to start making our own English muffins in the Thermomix. And you wont believe how simple they are to make!

How To Rise Your Dough

Once you’ve made your English muffin dough, it’s time to let it rise! Here’s a few tips for helping dough to rise:

  • place the dough into a greased bowl or ThermoServer (this will help to remove the dough later on)
  • cover your ThermoServer with a lid. If you don’t have a ThermoServer, cover your bowl with a tea towel to trap in the heat.
  • place the bowl or ThermoServer in a warm and draught-free place to rise for approximately 1 hour (or until doubled in size).
  • a warm spot might be in front of a sunny window, on top of a hot water bottle, in front of a fireplace. You can also heat you oven on low and then turn it off before placing your bowl/Thermoserver inside (just make sure it’s not too hot or you may melt the lid/cook the dough!)

How To Cook English Muffins

Want to know the best thing about cooking English muffins? You don’t even need to turn the oven on!!! That’s right, you simply cook the muffins in a griddle or frying pan on the stovetop.

When you’re ready to serve them, simply cut in half and place into your toaster as you normally would. DELICIOUS!

Equipment

  • Thermomix
  • Stove-top

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp dried active yeast or 30g fresh yeast
  • 300 g milk full fat
  • 30 g caster sugar
  • 30 g butter room temperature
  • 1 egg large
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 540 g bread flour or plain flour
  • semolina for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Place the dried active yeast, milk and sugar into the Thermomix bowl. Heat for 2 minutes, 37 degrees, Speed 2.
  • Add the butter, egg, salt and flour and mix for 5 seconds, Speed 6. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix on Interval/Knead function for 2 minutes. Please note: the dough will be very sticky!!!
  • Place the dough into a greased bowl or ThermoServer and allow to rise for aprroximately 1 hour or until doubled in size (see recipe tips below).
  • Sprinkle semolina over a board and place the dough on top. Use a little extra semolina to roll the dough out until 4cm thick. Use a 9cm round cutter to cut out round circles.
    You'll get apprximately 8 English muffins (make sure they're not rolled out too thin… we want them nice and thick!)
  • Place the muffins onto a tray sprinkled with extra semolina (to stop them from sticking). Leave for 20 minutes to rise again (this time they'll only rise slightly).
  • Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat and sprinkle with extra semolina. Cook the muffins (in batches) for 5-8 minutes either side (until they're golden and risen). Set aside.
  • Once completely cooled, store the muffins in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. When ready to use, cut the muffins in half and place into the toaster. Cook and then serve with eggs or your favourite condiments.
