English muffins are one of the favorite breakfast foods or part of a brunch, and they are often an alternative to toast. Many people tend to confuse them with crumpets because they share similar ingredients. However, they have a significant difference, i.e., English muffins are made from firm dough while crumpet is made from loose batter.
Can I make English muffins on an electric griddle? Yes, you can cook English muffins on an electric griddle and it’s easier than you think. Unlike frying pans, electric griddles have a large non-stick cooking surface that allows easy food flipping. Additionally, the increased space can accommodate many English muffins at once. Below is a simple guide on making English muffins on an electric griddle.
Making English muffins on an electric griddle is similar to cooking pancakes on a griddle, and it’s a simple process as outlined below. Additionally, you can easily control the temperature on the electric griddle.
First, you need to have all the necessary ingredients to make nice English muffins. As highlighted above, often, people confuse crumpets with English muffins. Their ingredients are different, and it’s what distinguishes them. Below is a list of necessary ingredients you need:
Once you have all of the above ingredients, follow the below process.
Prepare a clean, flat, and floured surface. Then remove your dough from the stored bowl/ container and put it on the above surface. You should also flatten it.
Allow it to rest for a few minutes before you start cutting small circular balls that look like dinner rolls. You can as well use muffin rings to make equal and evenly shaped English muffins, and other people use scone cutters.
The next step is to lay your English muffins on a baking tray. Then cover them again with a cling wrap and leave them for about 30-40 minutes. It allows them to rise.
Before placing your English muffins on an indoor electric griddle for cooking, you should first preheat it to about 350 degrees F.
If you find it necessary, spray your electric griddle’s cooking surface with some cooking oil. However, you might not need the cooking because the griddle has a non-stick cooking surface or coat.
Then carefully lift your English muffins from the baking tray using a spatula/ flipper and place them on the preheated electric griddle for cooking. However, don’t overcrowd your griddle with excess muffins. If you want many English muffins, you cook in batches.
You’ll notice the muffins will spread out a little bit and puff up. Let them cook for about 7 minutes on that side till they form a nice golden brown color.
Then use your spatula to flip the muffins to cook on the top side. It should take about 4-5 minutes to cook on the second side. Additionally, the cooking side should turn golden brown.
Lastly, remove them from the electric griddle to a plate. Also, turn off your indoor electric griddle.
Note: English muffins are best and delicious when off the griddle and slightly warm. You may top it with your favorite jam or topping.
