English Muffins are not English, any more than Buffalo wings come from bisons or water buffalo. They were invented by a Yank, and they are called English muffins because when they are split open they resemble a crumpet, which is most definitely English.

The recipe looks good! I'm aching to try it!

If you look around the edge of a commercially made muffin such as Thomas', You'll see perforations around the muffin on the edge. A mechanical device 'stabs' the muffin all around to partially slice it in half. Then you can separate the halves more easily. They call it fork split.

I learned to make English muffins when I wanted to make bread and didn't have an oven. English muffins are much more versatile than bannock.

Don't be silly! Buffalo wings were invented in Buffalo NY.

You don't need a stabber. You just need two forks. Or, you could perforate all the way around with one fork and then work it open with one fork or two.

Havent heard of them served up with gravy, but am sure would be delicious! We tend to have them for breakfast, with just butter, jam or egg and bacon.
