Have a craving for english muffins, none on hand, and no yeast on hand? If you have greek yogurt and self rising flour (or flour, baking powder, and salt) on hand and 30 minutes, this quarentine english muffin hack is for you.
Yields 4 english muffins
5 minPrep Time
22 minCook Time
27 minTotal Time
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by either sprinkling with cornmeal,lining with silpat, or parchment paper.
- Measure out 1 cup of self rising flour or the dry ingredients from the ingredients list above to make your own self rising flour. Mix together the greek yogurt and dry ingredients until it just comes together into a ball of dough. It may help to use your hands. Gently knead your dough until it has a uniform and smooth appearance. The dough will feel more like playdough in comparison to yeast doughs.
- Separate the dough into four sections and roll each section into a ball. Press each roll into about a 3 inch disc. If using cornmeal on your pan, sprinkle a little now on each side of the the dough discs.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then turn each and bake another 12 minutes - just until they are browning and there is a bit of "knock" when you tap on the top.
To make bagels: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix and knead your ingredients the same as above. Separate the dough into 4 sections and roll each out into a dough snake. Bring the two ends of the dough snake together to make an "O" or bagel shape. Sprinkle with your favorite bagel topping. Bake for 17-20 minutes - just until browning and cooked through.
Storage and reheating: Store in an airtight container. Reheat in oven at 350 degrees F for 5-10 minutes.
