Homemade English Muffin Recipe

About 6 months ago our family cut out most artificial nonsense for our diets. That means if we want bread – we make it ourselves. One thing I really had a hankering for was an English Muffin, but I was intimidated about making these from scratch. English Muffins are actually super easy to make from scratch using a bread machine! This is just one of all recipes I’ve shared on this blog of our family tested recipes!
