English muffins

These beautiful muffins are so delicious. They are easy to make, but take time to cook. 

The recipe I'm using is adjusted from fatemahisokay on YouTube. She has some amazing recipes. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vyN59An_in8

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp yeast

1 tsp sugar

1 tbsp salt

3 Tbsp oil

1 egg

1 cup warm milk

1 tbsp oil to roll and rise the dough in. 

Take the flour, yeast and sugar, add the milk, egg, oil and salt. Mix with a fork until the dough comes together, once it has pulled into a mass knead by hand for a few minutes. If the dough get too sticky, add a couple tablespooons of flour and continue kneading. Once it is soft and slightly springy drizzle oil over and let rise at least 60 minutes or until doubled in size. 

Roll out into approx 1/4 inch thick and cut with a cup, cookie cutter, or measuring cup. Let rise at least 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

Preheat a large skillet or frying pan on low-med heat.It takes a good 10 minutes to get the pan heated through nicely. Gently place the muffin on the hot skillet gently flip and rotate from high heat areas to lower heat areas for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and cooked inside. 

When rolling out the next batch from the first cut scraps. You need to let the dough rest after shaping into a ball this can take about 30 minutes until the ball is ready to be rolled flat, then cut, let the muffins rise and bake as previously instructed. 

Yumm! Give them a try:)

Not so Puffed Wheat Squares.

So these tasty cereal squares are supposed to be puffed wheat, but I didn't have any. So they are honey nut cereal squares. 

The method to these is so simple. Pour all of the following ingredients into a pot. 

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup corn syrup/golden syrup

1 cup white sugar

1/4 brown sugar 

1/2 cup cocoa

Once these ingredients boil count to 45, like 1,2,3 not super slow and not super fast. Stir while counting. 

Before your mixture is boiling measure 10 cups of any type of cereal into a bowl.

Once your mixture is ready pour into your measured cereal. Mix well, so that each piece gets coated. 

Have either a buttered 9 by 13 or 2, 8 by 8 pans ready for the squares to be poured and pressed into. Use your wooden spoon to gently but evenly press the squares together. 

The squares should be soft to cut if the sauce didn't over cook. 

Let sit for at least 20 minutes to slightly harden before cutting. 

And then you'll have these delectable beauties that you'll down in minutes.

Thanks for reading, give these a try:) they are so good:)
