I modified a recipe this morning that my wife found online at ‘The Big Mans World dot com’ for ‘Microwave English Muffin’ ~ and it was a real treat! Who would think you could make a believable English Muffin in a microwave in a few minutes, and then toast it? Check out his amazing recipe and website, and I’ll give you my version, as well.
My ‘Gluten-Free Applesauce, Oat and Cinnamon English Muffin’ was made with what we had on hand:
3 Tablespoons of oat flour
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons of apple sauce
2 Tablespoons of milk
Cinnamon sprinkled liberally
Pinch of salt
I buttered a 5.5″ (interior dimension) flat-bottomed glass microwave bowl, mixed the dry ingredients together, and then added the wet ingredients, stirring well. I microwaved the batter for 3 minutes in the microwave, watching as the batter firmed up and pulled back from the edge of the glass bowl at 2 minutes. The English Muffin fell out of the glass bowl easily when tipped over onto a drying rack to cool.
After a few minutes I baked the muffin in a toaster oven for about 3 minutes to give it the look and feel of a baked muffin, prior to slicing it in half once it was cool. I then toasted the slices in the toaster like a regular English Muffin, and ate it with butter and jam ~ delicious! I think this English Muffin without the cinnamon, would work out great for cheese sandwiches with a slice of Provolone or Swiss cheese in the frying pan. Here’s a couple of photos ~ enjoy!
