I have always loved english muffins. The way the butter seeps into the little crevices and softens the inner muffin while the outer muffin retains its crispy crunch has always been a special breakfast treat. I’ve tried one other gluten-free english muffin before and was not pleased with the texture, but thought I would give it a go again. I bought the Food for Life variety today at Publix. I had contacted Food for Life directly a while back and they sent me a package of manufactuers coupons to use on any of their products so after coupon these muffins were only $2.50 which is a great bargain for gluten-free bread items.
Will these muffins meet up to my standards? After defrosting one in the microwave for about 30 seconds I separated it and put it in my toaster. The muffin didn’t get very brown in there, but maybe I should have tried to toast it longer. I smothered it in butter and strawberry jam and tried my first bite. I was pleasantly surprised. The muffin tasted very similiar to what I had remembered an english muffin should taste like. One warning though….there are little sprouts sprinkled throughout the muffin so the texture of those is different.
Happy Happy Joy Joy! I found a decent english muffin!
