My latest experiment has been to make sourdough English muffins. I've made sourdough bread (no winners in that yet), tortillas (so so), crackers (yum), pita breads (pretty good), and now English muffins from this recipe here. They actually turned out pretty good!
I started them at night before I went to bed. In the morning the dough hadn't risen very much so I left it & didn't get back to it til after lunch. I added the remaining ingredients, covered them with oiled plastic wrap & a towel, and set them in the oven with the light on to rise. The directions say let rise for 1 hour- well, mine never did rise! I let them sit for about 6 hours & finally decided just to cook them. They actually did rise some when I cooked them. Here there are all snuggled up in my skillet:
Here's one opened up- not too bad, eh? As you can tell I made mine using whole wheat flour.
I should have put a big pat of melting butter on it for the picture...
*Update: the night before I had pulled a chub (thick roll) of ground pork sausage out of the freezer, so this morning it was not quite fully thawed. I was able to slice off half inch circles (like you used to with refrigerated cookie dough) and cook. Easy way to have round sausage for your own "Sausage McMuffins".
