Bakers Are Moving Past Bland, Boring White Flour—With Delicious ResultsTakePart
all 2 news articles »
Breakfast has been said to be the most important meal of the day, but so often it is made up of coffee and not much else. I make a point to purchase store-bought bagels and English muffins to have on hand, but they lack flavor and I find myself skipping that first meal more often than not. I remembered back to Zoe’s post on baked English Muffins, and decided to try the same technique on the stove top to save some time. Sure enough, they were amazing! Soaked in butter and a little jam, or filled with eggs and cheese, these biscuits were worth making every time. They also re-toasted well; I made a large batch Sunday morning and had a delicious breakfast the rest of the week.
If you have a digital scale, weigh out 3 1/2-ounce balls, otherwise estimate the size of a largish peach. Both the Master recipe and our Brioche dough work well here, but feel free to experiment with other dough!). Basically, the Master recipe is just…
–3 cups lukewarm water
–1 tablespoon (or 1 packet) of Red Star yeast (instant, Platinum, or active-dry)
–1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of Morton Kosher salt (or other coarse salt)
–6 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
… mixed as in the Back to Basics post. Flatten the balls and place them on a flat surface (if you have English muffin molds, you can follow Zoe’s instructions here for shaping). Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
Heat up a large skillet (cast iron works well) and inside place 1 tablespoon of Ghee, clarified butter or European style butter (you can use regular butter, but you have to be careful of the butter burning. The ghee and clarified butter have a higher burning point and allow you to cook without worry of it burning).
Cook for about 3 minutes. When the bottoms are golden brown and the muffins have puffed, flip them over and cook, until the muffins are cooked all the way through and are golden.
Let cool slightly and serve with butter and jam, or eggs, bacon, and cheese (the best breakfast sandwich you may ever have!) The English Muffins also taste delicious re-toasted the next day.
Note: Gold Medal Flour and Red Star Yeast are sponsors of BreadIn5 LLC’s promotional activities.

Thanks for the great opportunity, Grant. Here’s the video we shot for the Portland Oregonian (Return to TV/Video/Radio page):
Pan de muerto is the traditional Mexican sweet bread eaten during Día de los Muertos, observed November 1 and 2 to honor loved ones who have died and celebrate the eternal cycle of life. The signatures of this soft, sweet, orange- or anise-scented bread are the “skull” and “bones” and that decorate its top and sides.
This pan de muerto recipe is richer in butter than one I have made in the past, and zestier with the use of sourdough starter. I present it in honor of mis muertos, who made my life richer and zestier in countless ways:
My father: Charles W. Tenney, Jr., a brilliant mind and playful wit, who encouraged me to dream first and ask questions later.
My maternal grandparents: Mary Strawson, who taught me to make things with my hands, and Stanton Strawson, who thought hammering together wooden vessels to float in the tide pool was a perfectly wonderful pursuit for little girls.
My paternal grandparents: Mildred Tenney, who loved nothing more than sitting down at the piano to play a lively tune, and Charles W. Tenney, Sr., who gave me stamps that inspired me to learn how to use an atlas and discover more about the big world out there.
