We bought some honeycombs from New Zealand lately. That’s something new to us. I never had honeycomb before and I don’t like the idea of just eating that like a snack (as described by the seller). So I have been thinking and searching for different ways to incorporate honeycomb into a meal or a dish.
I came across this webpage of having honeycomb with cheese and caramelized onions on top of English muffins. My first reaction of seeing that idea was “Ha! Now I have more reasons to make some English muffins”. I first followed the recipe from my favorite bread book but after two attempts, I was pretty sure there must be a typo mistake in the ingredient sections. Then I changed to the recipe from Paul Hollywood, who is one of the judges of the Great British Bake Off.
This recipe gives very nice and soft English muffins. I actually lost almost 100% of my interest on McD rubbery muffins after this. As English muffins was one of the technical challenges of the Great British Bake Off, I had a good start because I have rough ideas of what should I take note in the making process. It is not a difficult recipe but you have to pay attention in cooking the muffins as they could be easily undercooked in the inside but burned on the outside.
I had the muffins with different topping such as sauté spinach and mushrooms, poached egg and sweet onion dip. Even eating a plain muffin was not a bad idea since it has a pleasant smell and taste of milk and butter. We finished the muffins over 2-3 days and it was only until I was about to write this post, I realized I my honeycomb was still sitting in the cabinet, unopened.
I can’t believe that I have totally forgot about my original plan!
