Sourdough English Muffins

Inspired by kjknits EM recipe I decide to try it out.  I don't have a cutter so I just cut them into square shapes with my dough scraper.  They turned out nice.  My wife, who eats the Thomas brand regularly, also seemed to like them too.  Thanks to kjkniots for the recipe.  They came out with holes on one side after slicing for some reason.  Maybe the side that hit the hot pan first got bubbles or cause them to go away?No I don't think I will be buying an EM cutter either - unless I find one at Goodwill.

These are delicious toasted with butter and home made 6P Jam ( prickly pear, pineapple, plum, pear & pomegranate)  Can't buy that at the store :-)

I have English muffins next on my list to bake....looks like yours turned out great.

If you don't want to buy a cutter to make them round, you can save a vegtable can and use that to make your muffins.  Just choose one that is big enough for your purposes.

I do have to say, while I have never seen square English Muffins, they certainly look delicious!

of them as Irish Scones that were supposed to be triangles but someone, too snockered on Guinness, forgot to cut them from squares :-)  T^hey are really delicious but I will have to make them again and see why the holes only happened on one half and why that half. I will pay more attention to which side is up e it does the final rise and which side hits the the iron skillet first. 

You can't go wrong with these - they toast and taste great.  kjknits has a real winner here.
