English Muffin Recipe with White Vinegar

I used to have a bread machine cookbook recipe for English Muffins that also used White Vinegar. It gave them an AMAZING flavor! I have since misplaced this recipe.....does ANYONE have a recipe like it? There were no deep nooks and crannies, but the flavour was incredible! It doesn't have to be a BM recipe.......

Well, I am FINALLY at the point to cook them.....so far, I am not too happy! They may taste wonderful....but getting to this point has been a pain!! The dough was WAAAAY too wet so I added an extra 3/4 cup of flour...I should have added at least twice that!! The only way to handle them to form them, was to dip my fingers in oil!!! I am going to tweak this recipe so I will let you know how that batch turns out! Also, I will let you know how these taste! If you try to make them, let me know how they turn out for you!!!


Thanks!!

Well, the floavor is EXCELLENT!! But I have GOT to tweak this recipe!!! It was too wet to handle witout dipping my hands in oil....which to me sort of defeats the purpose of making my own at home!! At any rate...I would probably add at least 2 cups of flour to this recipe....I think it should maybe be a little tacky but not WET!!! Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think.....


Thanks!!

Thanks for the update Jann,


I will let you know how I fair with this recipe. I have thoughts of possibly using a no-knead approach, ie: ~ 1/4 tsp. yeast and letting it sit overnight to develop more flavor. Not sure yet. I will add the liquid gradually and note the total when I think the consistency is right.


Did the crumb have nice holes due to the high hydration?

The crumb was good....but that is not a huge deal for me. I am all about the taste....but yes it did have good nooks and crannies. Do let me know how it turns out for you. Again, I really like the flavor of it but it was just a HUGE pain to try to handle. The recipe I had before was for the bread machine.....it worked it into a wonderful dough and I formed and cooked them. I think I can make this work too. As for forming them...I was so irritated I was in a hurry to get them done so I made them a bit big. BOY did they grow!!! LOL....they are about 5 inches!!But....again....I will be tweaking it!!! Please let me know how and what they do for you!!


Thanks Rock
