I bought some fresh yeast this past Friday, remember when I went to buy some lard for the tortillas I've been meaning to make. Since Lard has a very long shelf life, I will get to those tortillas soon! I promise.
No fresh bread in the house, to lazy to walk to the Boulangerie and with a stash of fresh yeast means that I start to search through my favorite bread recipes. I stumbled on an old standby, English Muffins.
Pretty easy prep, one rise, a quick shape and a bench rise of about 30 minutes and I'm on my way to fresh baked heaven.
I use a crepe pan to cook my muffins, I don't have a griddle.
Hmmmmmm......Should I put that on my list?
After the muffins are firm to the touch (Not on the top of the muffin, but on the sides. It is slow process and the muffins will 'tell' you when they are cooking too fast) they will finish 'steaming' in a ziplock with a nice clean cotton dish towel. I'll freeze some and toast the rest during the week.
I'll post the recipe, but I'm using a "King Arthur" I swiped off the 'net. Substituting 20g's of fresh yeast instead of the yeast they use.
I love the taste of the muffins, toasted with unsalted butter and some Poire with Vanilla Confiture from the Ferme de Gally.
