 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Dry yeast
    3       c            Warm water
    2       tb           Sugar
    1       t            Salt
      1/2   c            Dry milk
    8       c            Flour, divided
    6       tb           Vegetable oil
 
   In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water. Add
   the sugar, salt and dry milk and bland. Add half the
   flour and whisk for 1 minute. Set the mixture aside
   for 1 hour, or until the sponge falls back on itself.
   Beat in the oil. Add the remaining flour and mix well.
   Add extra flour if necessary to make a fairly stiff
   dough.
   
   With floured hands cut out about 20 four-ounce pieces
   of dough and form them into 3-inch patties. Place the
   patties on a greased cookie sheet and let rise about
   half and hour, or until they are doubled in bulk.
   
   Preheat griddle to 325 to 350 F and cook approximately
   7 minutes per side.
   
   For Cinnamon-Raisin English Muffins: Add 1 tbs.
   cinnamon and 1 cup raisins with the remaining flour.
   
   For whole wheat English muffins: Substitute “crunchy
   whole wheat flour mix” for white flour:
   
   :           2 cups whole wheat flour
   :           2 cups cracked wheat flour
   :           4 cups unbleached white flour
