All home made

Afternoon tea at our house today.
Butter - made by me this morning
Strawberry jam - made by me a few weeks ago
English muffins - made by me and the bread maker

The recipe for the muffins is...

• 1 cup milk
• 3 tablespoons butter
• 1 egg
• 0.5 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoons sugar
• 3 cups plain flour
• 1.5 teaspoons dry yeast (or one 7g sachet)
• Polenta

  1. Put ingredients in your bread machine in the order listed.
  2. Run the dough cycle.
  3. Sprinkle polenta over your work area.
  4. 
Use your hands to pat the dough into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle.
  5. Turn the dough so that each side gets lightly coated with polenta.
  6. Cut into rounds with a cookie cutter
  7. Let rise for 20 - 30 minutes--until not quite double.
  8. Heat a big frying pan - I give it a little squirt with canola oil.
  9. 
Cook the muffins about 5 to 7 minutes on each side - 
they should be golden brown when you turn them.
  10. 
These freeze well and can be reheated in the microwave or toasted if you manage not to eat them right away
