English Muffins

First attempt at making English Muffins and for some strange reason
they came out really good.
First time I made bread by "over proofing" all night.

This is the recipe I used. The lady did a lot of research.

They look just like the muffins I know. (Obviously we don't call them "English" muffins. Just "muffins")

Anyway, they look very good!

"Nooks and crannies?" Is that the air pockets? Sounds Scottish to me!

Guess they should be called American English muffins.
The nooks and crannies are what I like the most because after they are split you can fill them in with butter and jelly.

Or just call them muffins?? Who cares where they come from, right? As long as they taste good.) Anyway, served warm with butter, what could be tastier!

I think you did a very good job there BoracayB.
