Remember those over-the-top Thomas’ English Muffin commercials from the 80s, where some gentle old English chap contentedly recounts his idyllic childhood running down the cobblestone street with a hoop and stick, getting switched at school, wearing knickers, and eating Thomas’ English Muffins (à la A Child’s Christmas in Wales)?
Well, Paula at Dishing the Divine (via Alton Brown) has broken the spell. To make English muffins just like Thomas’, all you need are canning jar lid rings and glorified pancake batter. Tadaa!
