ABC bake some English muffins

This month in the Avid Baker's Challenge we have English muffins on the menu, in our year of baking recipes from the King Arthur Flour site. I never made English muffins before, but I loved these. They reminded me of our Dutch "Beschuitbollen", though these are baked with a tin on top and a lot dryer when shop bought. These are used to make our dutch "beschuiten" by cutting them in two disks and bake them for a second time in the oven.

It takes some time to make these, I baked them in a large frying pan that fitted 4 at the time. Their interior is immensly fluffy, soft and moist. Very nice. I didn't change anything really about the recipe, it was all bang on. Cut the first ones to check if they were cooked inside, but they all were good when I took the time on medium heat. We liked them a lot.

As my husband would say: "Just as English muffins should look like". He, as an American, should know. We liked them, too.
