To the detriment of their name, they are very soft sandwiches used in the Anglo-Saxon kitchen for the first meal of the day. Excellent both with sweet and savory are ideal for a breakfast made with tranquillity or for a snack.

In a saucepan we put the sugar and milk and let it warm up almost to the boil so we turn off and put aside. Melt the yeast in lukewarm water and let it rest 10 ‘.
Let the butter dissolve so we start to put all the liquid ingredients in the kneader followed by the solid ones and mix until a smooth and homogeneous mixture is obtained.

We take the dough obtained, give it a round shape and let it rise in the oven (off), for 1h and 30 ‘, in a previously oiled bowl covered by film. After the leavening time, the dough should have doubled its size so let’s take it and get ready to work it. We put the baking paper on a baking sheet and spolveriamola of flour (corn or 0).

We spread the dough until it reaches the thickness of 1 cm, then, with the help of a coppapasta, we get the shapes of our sandwiches that we will put to leaven for another 45 ‘. After the time, the muffins will be ready for baking.

In a non-stick pan we put a round of oil and let it warm up so we start to lay our English muffins that will have to cook for about 4 ‘. Togliamoli, then, from the pan, put another round of oil and cook on the other side for another 4 ‘ continuing so until we finish all our muffins.
