These Overnight Teff English Muffins are a delicious breakfast option, with a gluten-free adaptation available. The combination of active dry yeast, honey, and buttermilk creates a flavorful and fluffy dough that is easy to work with. The use of teff flour and a dusting of teff grain adds a unique nutty flavor and texture to these homemade muffins.
*If using gluten free flour, the dough will appear very wet, but don’t give in to the urge to add more flour, continue to knead in your mixer with the dough hook until the dough comes together.
**If you are using gluten-free flour, shape each piece into discs exactly the size and shape you want the english muffins to be. The gluten free dough will not double in size.
