Number of Servings: 15


    1 packet (.25 oz) active dry yeast (not instant)
    3 Tbsp sugar
    1/4 cup warm water (105* to 115*)
    1 cup milk, scalded
    3 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
    3/4 tsp fine sea salt or table salt. (1 tsp kosher salt)
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    3 cups all purpose flour
    1 egg, beaten


- Dissolve yeast and 1 Tbsp sugar in the water. Set aside.
-In mixing bowl, combine remaining sugar, milk, butter, salt, whole wheat flour and 1 cup AP flour and beat well. Add egg & yeast mixture and beat until smooth. While mixer is running on low, add enough of remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead by hand or mixer until dough is smooth and elastic (6-8 minutes by mixer)
-Place in a lightly greased bowl and cover, let rise at room temp until doubled (about 1 hour)
-Punch down dough, place on lightly floured surface and roll to 1/4-1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 3.5 inch circles with biscuit cutter.
-Allow to rise again until doubled.
-Lightly sprinkle an electric fry pan or griddle with cornmeal. Cook on the griddle on low about 10 minutes per side until nicely browned.
-Let cool completely before storing a plastic bag in the refridgerator or freezer. Thaw frozen muffins in fridge before serving. To serve, split with fork and toast.

***The recipe yields 15, including the scrap that I couldn't make into a final product, I had to reform some of the dough to cut number 13 and 14.
