Ingredients

Choose your measure:

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons non-diastatic malt powder
  • 2 cups King Arthur white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cup malted wheat flakes
  • 3/4 cup Hi-maize Fiber
  • 1/4 cup Baker's Special Dry Milk
  • 1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons cornmeal or semolina to dust the griddle

Instructions

  1. Stir together all of the ingredients except the cornmeal or semolina. Beat until the dough is glossy, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Cover the bowl, and let dough rise at warm room temperature until doubled in size, about 90 minutes.
  3. Preheat both the oven and a griddle or heavy skillet to 350°F (medium high heat). Grease metal muffin rings.
  4. Place rings on the griddle, and sprinkle a little cornmeal or semolina into each; this will give muffins their traditional crust.
  5. Scoop 1/3 cup of dough into each ring and spread the dough to the edge of the ring. (wet your fingers to stop the dough from sticking to them). Sprinkle with more semolina.
  6. Cook the muffins for 5 to 6 minutes, until the edges look set and the bottom is golden brown. Flip the muffins, and cook the second side for 5 to 6 minutes.
  7. Place the muffins on a baking sheet and place into a 350°F oven for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven, cool for 5 minutes, and remove the rings (if they haven't already fallen off). Cool the muffins on a rack, and store at room temperature, well wrapped.
  9. Yield: 12 English muffins.
