Okay, call me crazy if you want… it is 12:00 am and while I am typing up this post… I am in the middle of making a quadruple batch of these amazing Sourdough English Muffins! They are SO SO good! Thankfully, I don’t do late night baking often. Only when I need to make a large batch of something or couldn’t find the time to make it before dinner. So, I have to wait till the kiddos get into bed, organize the house a bit and then get started.
I think it is worth it because we will have fresh english muffins for breakfast tomorrow… well, actually, later this morning :oP LOL!!
I pretty much followed this recipe for the english muffins and only had to add a little more flour after kneading in the the honey, sea salt and baking soda. I found it very sticky… even after I used olive oil to prevent it from sticking all over my table and hands. I almost gave up and was ready to toss it because it was so sticky. Thankfully, I was able to save it by add more flour and kept on kneading it until it was smooth. I was too stubborn to give up that easy! LOL! Because I added more flour, I was worry that it was going to come out heavy and thick, but it was fluffy and thick in a light way… perfect! Plus, the flavor was simply superb!
This time around, I made sure to add more flour to get the dough pretty stiff. I found that it relaxed alot during the fermenting time. It wasn’t as sticky as the first time around, but I knead the dough in flour instead of olive oil. I like it better that way :o)
Don’t waste time thinking if you should do this or not… go and get it done! It is so easy and SO yummy! My family and I are in love with these delicious guys :o)
