You can make English muffins in a frying-pan, and it doesn’t take a long time to cook.

1/2 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 &1/4 teaspoon easy dry yeast

1 tablespoon butter (room temperature)

200ml  milk (room temperature)

Some cornmeal for sprinkling

Some black olive

Some sun-dried tomatoes, sliced


Place the flour, sugar, salt and instant dry yeast in a large bowl and stir together, mix in the butter and the milk.

Transfer the dough to a floured surface board and knead for about 10 minutes.

Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and roll to coat. Cover the bowl with cling film and and let rise about an hour in a warm place.

Punch down the dough and divide it into 6 pieces and shape into balls. Lightly coat the surface with oil and sprinkle with cornmeal, lay on a flat plate and cover the balls loosely with cling film and allow them to rise for about 40 minutes.

Arrange the black olives and sliced sun-dried tomatoes and make a smily face on the balls.
