Old Fashioned English Muffin

These no-knead muffins are perfect for a brunch. The dough can be made up to 42 hours before you’re ready to grill. Read the recipe carefully to make sure you leave enough time for the dough to proof in the fridge: the no-knead nature of this recipe is dependent on giving the dough a long, slow second rise.


  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1¼ tsp. instant dry yeast
  • 1½ cups skim milk, cold
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 egg white, cold
  • 1 cup fine cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil


  1. Mix flours, salt and yeast well in a large bowl.
  2. Add milk, honey and egg white, stirring until very smooth.
  3. Cover and set aside in a warm place until spongy, light, and more than doubled (4 to 5 hours)
  4. Dust a baking sheet with cornmeal. Spoon out twelve even portions of dough. Sprinkle with cornmeal, cover with plastic, and refrigerate at least 12 hours.
  5. Warm a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. When hot, add the oil. Grill muffins until their bottoms are golden brown. Flip and grill the other side until browned.
