Sourdough English Muffins

Immer wieder Sonntag is the host for Zorra's Bread Baking Day 75. She likes us to bake our favourite weekend bread for the 75th Bread Baking Day.

Every Tuesday we visit our friend Gerard who lives in a small Karen village 25 km from our house. First we visit the local market and then we all have breakfast. Many local hill tribes come to this Tuesday market; like Longneck Karen, different kind of Lahu, Lisu, Thai and us foreigners. They come to sell their home grown vegetables and fruits. 

At our breakfast we eat a lot of local food (fruit, noodles, sweets, soy products) and most of the time I bring some freshly baked bread. This morning I brought English Muffins. I'd seen them at Susan's blog Wild Yeast a long time ago and this was the perfect moment to make them. 

I fermented the dough in the refrigerator during the night and the next morning I shaped the muffins and let them proof in the car. It was the first time I proofed bread in our car! I baked the muffins at our friend's house and we ate them warm. 

Our friend had made a delicious jam with mango, apples, banana and wild honey.

This was our favourite weekend bread. It's delicious: soft crumb with a nice crust, the taste and smell are really nice. It's fun to make!
