Just Like "Thomas'" English Muffins: Alton Brown is the source of this recipe, and the man is a genius! These English muffins are amazing! They have all the holes I was looking for! And if you can make pancakes, you can make English muffins, because English muffins are just a glorified pancake recipe! You just pour the batter into rings – or in my case, canning lids – and voila! English muffins!
