With 100% white whole wheat flour, the texture isn’t quite like that of a Thomas’ English muffin, but it is still light and airy.

Author's Notes

Requires overnight prep.

This dough is very wet, like batter, so you will need English muffin rings or something similar (empty tuna cans, Ball jar rings, etc.) to constrain the dough. The key with this recipe is to be sure to portion the dough into 10 rings.
