This recipe comes from Faith Church’s cookbook, A Little Bite of Faith.  Surprise, surprise, I made a few changes to this recipe, I used 3/4 cups whole wheat flour instead of all white.  I also added 1 tsp Cinnamon and 3/4 cup raisins. 

I’m not really sure what I expected when I took a bite out of this thing, but I liked it!  It didn’t have as many ‘nooks and crannies’ as an actual english muffin, but it had a nice texture.  I threw my piece in the toaster oven for a few minutes and spread on some butter.  This would be really good with some jelly if made without the Cinnamon and raisins.  Next time, I would add more Cinnamon and raisins if I decided to go in that direction, or just make it whole wheat and eat with jelly.
