Whole Wheat Homemade English Muffins Recipe
English Muffins in this recipe are made from part whole wheat flour and all purpose flour. These English Muffins take me back to the days when I lived in the US, where I loved these muffins for breakfast along with marmite or even had it along with eggs. In the video recipe you will notice I use a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer for kneading my breads. But if you don't have a stand mixer then you can use your hands and follow the same procedure.

To begin making the Whole Wheat Homemade English Muffins Recipe, into the large bowl of the stand mixer, add in a cup of warm milk, the melted butter, an egg, half a teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoon castor sugar, 3 teaspoons active dry yeast, and the flours.
Using the dough hook knead the dough until all the ingredients are well combined to form a soft smooth dough.
