Better Breakfast: English Muffin From Scratch with Blueberry Honey Ricotta

Posted by

This is a really easy and delicious combination that I think you'll enjoy.  I made the english muffins from scratch, but for a much quicker version just use store bought whole grain muffins or rolls.  Lately I prefer using organic white whole wheat flour for breads like this, but regular whole wheat flour will work as well!

Blueberry Honey Ricotta

2 tbsp fresh ricotta

2 tsp blueberry honey

Fresh blueberries

Mix together.  Divide the mixture on top of a toasted english muffin, top with fresh blueberries

English Muffins

1 cup warm water

2 1/4 teaspoons (1 pkg) active dry yeast

1 cup fat free milk

2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3 tablespoons butter

4-5 cups white whole wheat flour

cornmeal for rolling

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a mixing bowl. Combine milk, sugar, salt, and butter, and heat to 110 F. Add to yeast mixture along with 3 cups flour. Beat for 3 minutes. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough and turn out onto floured surface. Knead for 3-5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise 1 hour.

Divide the dough in half, and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll dough on a surface sprinkled with cornmeal to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter. Place circles onto ungreased baking sheet. Cover with a towel and let rise 20 minutes.

Place muffins onto a medium heat griddle or skillet and cook until brown on each side. Split with a fork and toast before serving.

  • I had no idea it was even possible to make English Muffins yourself. I thought they had the secret recipe locked up in the attic of Mr. Thamas' Victorian mansion or something. Can't wait to try it out for myself.

  • I agree with Woody, I had NO idea you could make English Muffins. I eat them every morning. I will have to try this for sure! Great Job!

  • I want to try making English muffins. Never considered it before...

  • We live in Florida where there is an abundance of blueberries and blueberry honey. I have blueberry honey in the cupboard now (we eat on biscuits). I can't wait to try your recipe. Thanks.
