HOMEMADE ENGLISH MUFFINS AND HEART-SHAPED CORNBREAD

INGREDIENTS READY AND WAITING


MIXED INGREDIENTS WAITING TO BE KNEADED


AFTER 10 MINUTES OF KNEADING BY HAND AND WAITING TO RISE.

CUT IN HALF TOASTED AND SLATHERED WITH EARTH BALANCE AND APRICOT FRUIT SPREAD.


Yesterday I Made:
HOMEMADE ENGLISH MUFFINS for BREAKFAST.

Making english muffins from scratch was always something I wanted to do and I finally did it!!!
It was so much fun to make, from proofing, to kneading by hand, to rising, to punching down the dough, rolling it out, cutting out perfectly round circles, and finally to baking.

This recipe only called for 7 ingredients and that's including water.
I'm pretty sure store-bought ones have way more than that.
I don't think I will ever buy store-bought english muffins again (not that I ever did).
Just gotta plan ahead.


Heart-shaped muffin tin from TARGET.

On Monday I Made:
HEART-SHAPED CORN BREAD for DINNER.
Don't remember where I got this recipe from, but it's pretty straight forward.
Whole wheat flour, cormeal, soymilk, flax seeds, baking soda, and salt.

Served alongside Chocolate chili (not picture)which I made here.

I can't wait to use this tin again.
Muffins, cupcakes, miniture cakes.
The possibilities are endless.

Ooo, I have been wanting to make those english muffins ever since I first got the book. They look delicious! Hmmm, gonna have to prise the book back off my bf who went and borrowed it from me the other day. Or perhaps I could convince him that he should make them instead!
