Homemade English Muffin recipe – From Jennifer Garner’s Fake Cooking Show. These freezer-friendly English muffins are a perfect make-ahead breakfast.
Have you ever watched Jennifer Garner’s Fake Cooking Show? Could she be any more charming or adorable? She made homemade English muffins from the Huckleberry cookbook and I got in the car and went to the store and immediately bought the ingredients to make them.
I had the book sitting on my bookshelf and somehow missed that recipe. It was also fortuitous because Ava was just telling me how she was craving an English muffin. They aren’t easy to come by in Germany, not even at the commissary. It’s one of those things that you don’t think about until you can’t get one. If you really want it, you have to make yourself homemade English muffins.
A friend of mine brought me something really similar to an English muffin from a trip to the UK. (Do they call them English muffins in the UK or just muffins?) I toasted it and slathered in French butter and jam and it was the highlight of my week. Sometimes the simplest things bring the most joy.
I’ve made these numerous times and this recipe works like a charm. It takes a little planning, but I promise you that it is worth it. There is truly nothing better than freshly baked bread in the morning. Anything that you make-ahead for breakfast is a plus in my book.
I haven’t baked anything in a few weeks and I’m missing it. One of the things that I am most looking forward to when we move to New England this summer is restocking my baking supplies at King Arthur Flour. It is two hours from our new house and I will be making the trip as soon as we are moved in. I love going there. The cafe is delicious and it is a baker’s paradise.
Tips for Making and Freezing Homemade English Muffins //
- If you have extras, you can keep them in an airtight container or freeze them. Give them a couple of seconds in the microwave and then toast them.
- I sometimes make a double batch and freeze them in a single layer before putting them into a storage bag to grab whenever we want one. They keep in the freezer for one month.
- Whatever you do, do NOT cut these with a knife. It will ruin all of the nooks and crannies that you made inside. Fork split only.
- I start these the night before I want to eat them. I cut them out and place them on the semolina lined baking sheet. Cover, and griddle the next morning.
