At first glance, the recipe for English muffins doesn't seem terribly different than any normal biscuit. I half expected them to basically be regular biscuits when they were done cooking. Happily, I was totally wrong.
These biscuits came out with a crispy outside and a chewy inside. Just like English muffins are supposed to have. And once I looked at the recipe more closely, these muffins actually have more in common with pizza dough than they do with regular biscuits. For starters, they use yeast instead of a chemical leavener like baking powder. And secondly, they contain no fat. Sugar, yes, but no oil or butter of any kind.
