English Muffins


I was really happy with my how my cheese bread turned out the other day that I am in abit of a hyped up mode for bread at the moment. I wanted to make something special for Ben and what’s better than English muffins for an English man? This is a rather easy recipe adapted from dim cookguide. I cannot believe how nice it turned out, as I was really worried it won’t be cooked properly and i might screw up the dough. Ben says mcdonald’s taste horrible and he loves mine! I’m ecstatic that i succeeded! I’m even more happy that Ben loves them :))
