Make GF English Muffins–Fun and Easy!
“Don’t be intimidated by this recipe to make gluten-free English muffins. Believe it or not–it’s fun and easy. Until I decided to learn how to make English muffins with gluten-free flour, I never thought about the fact that they are muffins but with a flat top. They are also a lot like a tall, fat perfect pancake. I found that if you have an electric or cast iron griddle and the necessary rings, this recipe will make five lovely English muffins!
English muffin rings are metal rings about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and about 1 inch in height. I use them for this recipe and for the gluten-free hamburger bun recipe. They really help make the muffins and buns look professional! They are usually sold in a pack of four and they aren’t expensive. Wouldn’t you know that both of these recipes need five rings–just my luck. After my first attempt to make English muffins, I went ahead and bought a second set. It’s not like we are going to stop eating English muffins, especially since they are so good!
To perfect this recipe, I tried several different gluten-full recipes substituting the Baking Free™ gluten-free all purpose flour and adjusting other ingredients. I learned a lot from each recipe. Taking the best from each, I finally came up with this recipe to share. I have since made English muffins several times. The results are so good that people can’t tell they are gluten-free! Try it–you will be richly rewarded! Happy gluten-free baking!”
