I love an English Muffin for breakfast, to make an Egg McMuffin, or an Egg Sandwich with boiled egg slices, or just have it toasted with cream cheese and fruit preserve…yummmm.
I found this interesting recipe for English Muffins to make from scratch in my own kitchen, so of course I was very excited to try it.
If you are craving some crusty, fresh bread, you will be surprised how easy it is to make it yourself without too much fuss and effort. It only takes flour, water, yeast and salt. NO KNEADING required.
Easter is one of my favorite holidays, because of its rich traditions. One of these is the blessing of a basket of special foods which becomes the Easter Sunday brunch, being the first meat meal, after a strict fast on Good Friday and Saturday. One of the special foods in that basket is a round shaped Easter Bread, called Paska in Ukrainian, or Babka in Polish. The top of this bread is elaborately decorated with fancy dough ornaments, having a cross as the central motif. Here is my family Paska recipe, which makes two large loaves, or several small ones.
