In a large bowl, sift all the dry ingredients, make a well in the center, add the milk and melted butter. With a blunt knife, start working the liquid into the flour. Hands in now and work the dough into a ball.
Put on to a floured surface and knead for 5-10 minutes, till you feel it becoming very elastic and smooth. (If its too dry to work, add more milk drop by drop. If too wet, add more flour.) Pop it back into the bowl and cover with cling-wrap and put it into a warm place for 20-30 minutes.
After the dough has rested, roll it out 1/2 inch thick, and have a cooky cutter or any 3 inch round cutter. I use an egg ring pressed into the dough to make the muffins just like shop ones.
Then dust each one with polenta or rice flour, put onto a floured tray, cover, and let the muffins rest in a warm place 20 minutes or until they have risen.
Heat the griddle or frying pan on medium heat, only slightly oiling the pan. Cook the muffins for 7 minutes each side, a few at a time. Serve warm. Makes 9.

I have no idea where I got this recipe, just found it on a piece of paper!
Measure flour by spooning lightly into cup. Combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt and soda. Heat milk and water to 120-130 degrees. Add to dry mixture and beat well.

Is there a recipe to make my own English muffins?
There are many online. You can do a Google search for English Muffin recipes but one I like is Alton Brown's from Food Network: www.foodnetwork.com/
I have an English Muffin Loaf recipe if you'd like that.
The reciped I use is from kingarthurflour.com
The only change I make is adding about 1/4 cup less water than they call for otherwise the dough is very soft and hard to handle.

This is a delicious bread that is great for sandwiches and breakfast. It is also the end of my quest for the Schlotzsky sandwich bread (this is what it was)!
