100% Rye Sourdough Pseudo English Muffins
Baking with rye flour is just different enough to pose a few challenges. Rye has gluten, yes, but it also behaves much differently than wheat when it comes into contact with liquid. And stir just a bit too much and you may as well be baking a rye flour paste.
This brings us to why these are called “pseudo” English muffins. The original English muffin is made with wheat, but it does not require additional leavening in the form of the baking soda mentioned in this recipe.
The final texture of these is also just a bit different than the usual English muffin. These have a finer crumb without the large holes that we are familiar with in English muffins.
That said, you’ll still love these for the taste, for the ease, and for the way it makes use of your sourdough starter. This is a great way to use up that half-cup of starter that you are might throw away every night when you feed your starter.
Throw it into a bowl with a few other ingredients and you’ll have piping hot English muffins your whole family will love in the morning.
