Breakfasts in our house tend to be hearty and require actual cooking. The family favorite tends to be pancakes, especially lemon ricotta pancakes with fresh blueberry sauce. We like our morning carbs for sure, so they also love when I surprise them with this yeast waffles recipe. My little girls love the experience of cooking together, and then eating the meal that they prepared with their own hands is even more satisfying.
But some mornings, things are hectic and I need a quick breakfast. In a pinch, cereal will certainly fit the bill, but that gets old and if it's a really busy morning, it may call for something we can just grab and go. My favorite quick, easy breakfast is a toasted English muffin with a smear of almond butter and apricot jam. It's the perfect sweet start to our day.
I make almost all the bread for my household, like this Sourdough Bread Recipe. The humble English muffin is no exception. So easy, it's just a shame not to! Now it's your turn.
Move on over store-bought muffins, 'cus you're out. Making English muffins from scratch is a breeze! You'll simply mix together just a few ingredients that you likely already have on hand, allow the dough to rise, and in about an hour, you'll have English muffins complete with nooks and crannies just like the store-bought brand.
These can be kept fresh in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks for a quick, ready to go breakfast. I just toss one of these muffins in my amazing Magimix Vision Toaster. The girls love to peer through the see-through sides as it's toasted to perfection each time. Warm from the toaster, it's ready to receive a pat of butter, a spread of peanut butter or a dollop of jam. Rosemary peach butter is my favorite topper of the moment and makes these simple English muffins a truly special breakfast treat or afternoon snack.
