Perfect English Muffins - light, lofty and full of HOLES

June 4, 2010 - 5:40pm -- jlewis30


The dough is really just a few steps up from batter. The high hydration ensures the muffins will be light and lofty rather than dense, creating medium to fine “nooks and crannies”.

The perfect rye for bread bowls (and spinach dip)...

December 17, 2009 - 11:07am -- Stephanie Brim

I need one. Not too heavy on the rye...maybe 20% or so. I prefer using stone ground whole rye as much as possible as it is the easiest thing for me to get where I am.

Going to search the forums and blogs, but I figured I'd ask opinions about what recipes *you'd* use before I go about choosing one.
