Sourdough English Muffins

Learn how to make your own sourdough English muffins! The perfect combination of crusty and chewy, there really is no comparison in flavor and texture to these naturally leavened English muffins. And they’re easy to make!

Contrary to their name, English muffins were actually invented in the United States, albeit by an English immigrant. In 1880, Samuel Bath Thomas opened up a bakery in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City and started making a variation of traditional English crumpets. They became so popular and in demand that he opened up a second bakery and eventually trademarked his “English muffins” in 1926. They’ve remained a staple in American cuisine and are found in every grocery store and are commonly served in restaurants across the nation, either toasted with butter and jam or as the crispy foundation for Eggs Benedict. 

It wasn’t until the 1990’s that the U.S. began importing them to Great Britain where they are known not as “English” muffins, but rather “American muffins”, “toasting muffins” and “breakfast muffins.”
