Late again! But we ATE some English muffins on 16 November…. Does that count?
And they’re not burned! They’re bien cuit.
How English are English muffins, anyway??
I haven’t often had English muffins – I confess they’ve never really been my favourite thing. But. I’ve only tasted commercially baked English muffins.
Well, actually, it turns out that I’ve tasted home-made English muffins once before. As I was writing this up, I noticed that I made them in 2006. But I blocked them out of my mind….
Way back at the beginning of August, I promised myself that as soon as the weather got cooler, I would try Emma’s (Laughing Gastronome) recipe for English Muffins. And here they are. Well, they LOOK like English muffins, anyway. But there the resemblance ends. I don’t know what I did wrong.
