- 2 cups Milk

- 5 cups Flour
- 1½ tsp Salt
- 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted
- 1 pc Egg
- Olive Oil
- In a small pot, heat up the milk and honey. Just a little bit, it should not boil. Then add the yeast and let it dissolve and sit for 5mins.
- In the mixing bowl add the flour and salt, turn the mixer on the lowest setting. Slowly add the milk mixture while the mixer is going.
- Allow it to fully mix in and then add the melted butter and egg. Mix it well for 10mins.
- Place the dough into an oiled bowl and let it proof for 1 hour.
- Dust the table with cornmeal, put the proofed dough on top and dust it with more cornmeal.
- Flatten out the dough a little, until it is flat with about half inch thickness.
- Using a medium round cookie cutter, cut out the English muffins and place them on a baking tray dusted with cornmeal.
- Dust the top with more cornmeal, cover it with a towel and let it proof for 30 more minutes.
- Once that is done, put the pan over medium heat and put a little bit of oil.
- When the pan is hot, start adding the muffins to it, leave some space between.
- Use a spatula to carefully flip them once the bottom is golden brown.
- Once both sides are golden brown, you can take it out of the pan and start to cook the other ones.
- Serve them hot out of the pan, wait for it to cool down or keep it in a sealed bag and eat it the next day! You can even freeze them.
- You might have to wipe the pan with paper towel between batches as the cornmeal that falls might starting burning on the pan.
