English Muffins

One tasty English muffin... You know how the song ends but maybe you don't know, how it all starts, because there is no song without fresh, hot and tasty English muffin. Check out the recipe!

What to serve muffins with

The most popular way is to toast them and then serve with some butter which will melt and soak into the muffin. Finally pick your favourite jam or marmalade (or lemon curd!) and enjoy! But what if you like something salty for breakfast? Cook Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and make your breakfast more fancy!

Can I freeze them?

the answer is absolutely yes! There is no reason to worry because if you put your muffins into a toaster after defrosting, you'll have amazing breakfast.

Cook with butter or not?

Honestly I don't like to put butter into the pan while cooking English muffins, because it soaks into them and then they are a bit oily... So, the best way cooking them is to put a little bit of butter in the beginning and then cook your muffins just in a dry pan.
