As this was my first attempt at making English muffins, I followed Delia Smith´s recipe (I took the recipe from her Complete Cookery Course book but this is almost exactly the same)to the dot. The only difference is that I used normal sugar as I´d run out of caster sugar and I didn´t use 2 0z of lard...I only used the tiniest amount just to grease the frying pan. The recipe turned out to be a great success (as you can see in the photo below!) so I will definitely be making them again!
1. Milk, water, sugar and yeast mixed to form frothy head
2. Forming the dough
3. After kneading (top-left

hand corner) 5. Muffins covered in clingfilm to rise
The finished muffins after light frying! Delicious!
