English Muffins!

 Oh boy- these were fun!  I used Marmee's recipe for Spelt English Muffins from her Bread Basket Cookbook, except I substituted some of my home-milled whole wheat flour (that I milled with my Nurtimill) for the spelt.  I have never tried anything like this before and I was a bit leery but they turned out so well!  I mean, look how pretty they are, puffing up on the griddle-

This recipe makes a large quantity (I think I ended up with about 40) which I love because for just a little work we will have English Muffins in our freezer for quite some time!  

We have used these for breakfasts, sandwiches and even mini-pizzas!  They are just so yummy and versatile!  I think the only thing I would do differently next time would be to make them a little bit bigger.  Oh, and I wouldn't make them on such a hot day because that griddle was on for a good amount of time!  Although, they did rise up nice and quickly with the heat!

I'm tellin' ya what though- I never would have tried to make these, especially this many, if I didn't have my trusty BOSCH Universal Plus Mixer!  Seriously, If you guys have never considered getting one of these, do yourself a favor and at least go check them out at Marmee's Bread Market!  After all, Christmas is on its way!!
