English muffins are a yeasted bread that is cooked on the
stovetop. I haven't made them myself since about 15 years ago, but
if memory serves me, the dough is more of a batter-like
consistency. Usually, you use a ring to contain the batter until it
firms up, then remove it. The result is something that about the
size and shape of a hockey puck. Probably the closest comparison
would be a pancake.
The other thing I remember was that it was quite difficult to get the
middle of the edge to cook properly.
I think I'll try making them again, now I think about it.
