Incessant English Muffins1

As I most recently have some time, I had been searching on the internet a few days ago. Trying to find new, challenging tips, inspirational dishes that I've never used before, to amaze my loved ones with. Searching for a while unfortunately could not come across too many interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this yummy and easy dessert simply by chance. It seemed so tempting
on its image, that called for urgent actions.
It was easy to imagine just how it's made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Mind you, it is rather easy to keep happy the man when it comes to puddings. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyway, I went to the webpage: Ambitiouskitchen and then followed the step by step instuctions that had been combined with nice shots of the operation. It just makes life rather easy. I can suppose it's a bit of a effort to shoot photographs in the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you most often have sticky hands thus i highly appreciate the effort and time she put in for making this blogpost and recipe easily followed.
With that in mind I am empowered to present my very own formulas in the same way. Thanks for the concept.
I had been fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to say it turned out an awesome success. They loved the taste, the overall look and enjoyed having a treat like this during a busy week. They quite simply requested more, many more. Thus next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I'm likely to twin the volume to make them pleased.

One personality trait that I've is how incessant I am. I'm still trying to puzzle out if that is a gain or a flaw on my part. Sometimes it can be both I suppose.
And that's why when today I saw Jess had made homemade English muffins, I had to make some. Not later today, not really a week in the future — I needed to make sure they are NOW! I blame this on my mother.
Imagine my frustration when I saw one must use English muffin tin rings to make English muffins. Who on earth has English muffin rings? Not me! Bound and determined, I went along to 4 stores in an hour trying to find said rings. I came home empty handed.
I was bummed, but still feeling incessant. I had to figure out a way to substitute for the rings — muffin tin? No . Small glass Pyrex containers - http://www.suncakemom.com/treats/sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-weekday-des... ? Ehhh…
What happened next made me upset — really upset. I Googled English muffin rings" only to find one could use foil rather than the muffin ring.
Seriously? Incessant blended with a little impatience — nothing can beat it.
I started by tearing off a foot of foil.
Cut it in half (hot dog style)…
Folded it in half again…
Then, I formed the foil into little rings, making sure to tuck the ends under each other so they wouldn't fall apart.
1 ) 5 cups gluten free flour mix (Bob's Red Mill All Purpose)
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 T active yeast
1 T turbinado sugar
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 1/4 cups plus 1 T hot water (about 110 degrees Fahrenheit)
Directions: Place all dry ingredients (including yeast) into a large mixing bowl. Mix until all ingredients are friends.
Add your hot water and olive oil and mix, mix, mix. I used a whisk for this — it's more of a batter" than a dough. This is GOOD!
Grease a baking sheet and line with 6 foil rings. Grease the rings aswell with cooking spray.
Place your baking sheet in a warm area (I used my UNheated oven) for half an hour. The dough should double in size.
After dough has risen, take the cookie sheet out from the oven and preheat is to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake English muffins for fifteen minutes.
After English muffins have cooled for some minutes, vigilantly peel away the foil from every individual muffin. Feel free to lick the bits of foil for crumbs.
I have to say I patted myself in the trunk a couple of times today — for both food and photo purposes.
Incessant, impatient, and egocentric — wow. I'm not making myself look too good here.
If perhaps I could get those characteristics to make the Husband make the bed in the morning…
