I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for a while. Made it today. They’re a little bland, I’ll use more salt next time, or pile on lots of jam and butter.
The recipe used (in a bread machine) with my changes and notes in bold:
Total time: 2 hrs 15 mins. Yield:18-21 muffins
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons white sugar try 1
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast. 2 tsp
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
¼ cup melted shortening or butter
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Or nuke for 30 seconds.
Mix in the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Let cool until lukewarm. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Eh, just toss it in the bread machine.
In a large bowl, combine the milk, yeast mixture, shortening and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add salt and rest of flour, or enough to make a soft dough. Knead. Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise.
Punch down. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut rounds with biscuit cutter, drinking glass, or empty tuna can. (I 3d printed a cutter!). Sprinkle waxed paper with cornmeal or flour and set the rounds on this to rise. Dust tops of muffins with cornmeal also. Cover and let rise 1/2 hour
Heat greased griddle. Turn to low (my griddle fits across two burners on my gas stove; it gets HOT!. You might need to use a higher temp or longer cook time for other griddles. Cook muffins on griddle about 5 minutes on each side. Allow to cool and place in plastic bags for storage. To use, split and toast.
