Warm English muffins with butter melted in the nooks and crannies are deeply comforting and nourishing to many of us. So it’s not surprising that during the early days of the pandemic, when our baking load was light, we decided to make our own version, putting our fun and unique stamp on them by calling them “Zinglish Muffins.” They were an immediate hit and we’ve been griddling muffins three times a week ever since. They’re made with what bakers call a “preferment,” giving them a slightly sweet and buttery flavor (just because of the fermentation process!) and the nooks and crannies we’ve all come to expect without any odd ingredients or preservatives. They’re a go-to item that deserves a permanent spot in your freezer so that you never run out.
