السلام عليكم
Peace be upon you

Hey guys! It's been a week after my last entry.. I don't have any interest to do anything for past few days termasuk lah nak menjenguk blog I ni. Sigh. Nasib baik tak bersawang lagi. :)

Few weeks ago, I made English Muffins for my nieces breakfast which one of my nieces requested for any kind of bread since months ago. Di sebabkan dia now cuti sekolah, I buat untuk dia sebakul! Ha makan lah puas-puas.


1 cup milk
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 package instant dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup melted shortening - I used corn oil
5-6 cups bread flour (or all-purpose) - I used superfine flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cornmeal (kalau u nak lah. I tak guna pun)


Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles on sides (just scalding, not boiling), then remove from heat. Mix in the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Let cool until lukewarm.

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

Combine the milk, yeast mixture, shortening and 3 cups flour. Mix them well. Add salt and rest of flour, or enough to make a soft dough. Knead the dough until dough is just formed. (Do not over-knead.) Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise to double size.

Punch down. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick (tapi i roll about 8mm thick je - vongok kan? Kengkonon tak nak gemok sangat bila dia double size nanti. Sigh. Nyesal.). Cut rounds with biscuit cutter or drinking glass. Sprinkle waxed paper with cornmeal and set the rounds on this to rise. Dust tops of muffins with cornmeal also. Cover and let rise 1 hour.

Heat greased griddle. Cook muffins on griddle about 1-2 minutes on each side (or till brown). Start on a lower heat setting and work way up to a medium setting. Allow to cool on rack and place in plastic bags or container for storage. To use, split and toast. Great with butter, or cream cheese and jam.

Since I'm craving to have it with dhal, I cooked curry dhal for savoury. But my niece have it with jam and chicken frankfurter. She toast it, steam the frankfurter and yum!
