  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (or more)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • cornmeal


  • Put ingredients in the machine in the order listed.
  • Start the dough cycle.
  • When the cycle is finished.
  • Sprinkle corn meal over your work area.
  • Use your hands to pat the dough into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle.
  • Turn the dough so that each side gets lightly coated with cornmeal.
  • Cut into 8 to 10 rounds. (An empty large tuna can works well)
  • When you run out of dough gather up the trimmings and cut more rounds.
  • Place the rounds on a baking sheet, cover and let rise for 20- 30 minutes–until not quite double.
  • Heat a dry cast iron skillet or griddle over a low flame. Lightly spray with Pam.
  • Cook the muffins about 5 to 7 minutes on each side.
  • They should be golden brown when you turn them.
  • Split the muffins with a fork or serrated knife and serve warm.
  • These freeze well and can be reheated in the microwave or toasted.
