Whole Wheat English Muffins

I have been wanting to try this recipe since I saw it on Finding Joy In My Kitchen. The recipe was fairly easy to make and the result was delicious! We had a couple freshly baked or should I say griddled and we made some breakfast sandwiches for breakfast with them this morning!

Whole Wheat English Muffins- adapted from Finding Joy in my Kitchen
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp butter, melted
2 tsp yeast
2 tsp honey

Combine water, milk, salt, and honey. Then add in 2 cups of flour and yeast. Mix until wet dough forms. Cover and let rise until doubled about 1 hr. When dough has doubled add in the rest of the flour and butter.

Roll dough out onto surface that has been lightly covered in cornmeal. You may need to kneed in extra flour to get the tackiness down...I know I did. Sno White has some wonderful pictures... I was covered in dough so I didn't get the pics taken!  Try not to over knead as this will deflate the bubbles. Roll dough until about 3/4 of an inch thick and cut into circles using a circle cookie cutter, biscuit cutter, or a glass. Place on cookie sheet and let rise 20-30 mins.

Preheat griddle to 350...mine does not have a temperture gage so I just wanted for it to warm up. Butter griddle and place muffins on top.
Cook for 10-15 mins until golden brown and flip. Cook for another 10-15 mins until cooked through.


  1. They look delicious, can't wait to try them myself!

  2. I have always wanted to make English muffins, but I've never tried it. This recipe looks great!

  3. I'm so glad you tried these and enjoyed them!!

  4. I had wanted to try these but never got around to it. Add in the last 2 times I purchased english muffins they were disgustingly stale tasting. Made them this morning and I will never buy an english muffin again. I used soft as white winter wheat so needed about an extra cup of flour. YUM!!!
