These cinnamon raisin English muffins will have to pushing your cart right past the English muffin section of your grocery store!
This post seems apropos, since I’m in England right now, even though English muffins are virtually unknown in England! That’s okay, we’ll skip that discussion because we should be able to agree that wherever they came from, they’re bloomin’ delicious!

Since I started this food and travel website, I have met so many talented creators, both virtually and in real-life.
For example, Cynthia from What a Girl Eats always calls me her “real-life” friend when she refers to me to her readers). Susan from View from Great Island had these great looking English muffins I just had to try.
Love griddle recipes? Try these Scottish cream girdle scones.
As I suspected, they were marvelous!
I made the dough in my bread machine; how easy is that? (The bread machine link will take you to the bread machine I own, but there are many more less expensive machines to choose from.)
Here is the recipe for these wonderful English muffins. The link will take you directly to View From Great Island for the original recipe without using a bread machine.
And if you love this type of griddle creation, you simply have to try Welsh cakes! They’re so incredibly delicious!

Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins
A delicious homemade version of Cinnamon Raisin English muffins.
- 14 oz (1 3/4 cups) lukewarm milk
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp softened butter
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten (room temperature)
- 1 lb (3 cups) bread flour
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp dry yeast
- 3.5 oz (1 cup) raisins
- (cornmeal, for sprinkling)
- Place the ingredients (in order listed, except for the cornmeal) into a bread machine and set the dough cycle. Add the raisins when the machine beeps for the addition.
- When the dough has doubled in size, place it onto a work surface dusted in flour (it will be a bit wet). Cut the dough into 12 pieces.
- Form the pieces balls, then flatten them into muffin shapes about 3 1/2" in diameter. Dust on both sides with cornmeal. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
- Use a little oil on the griddle and then cook the muffins on a low to medium low low heat for about 15 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown. Open one muffin to make sure they are thoroughly cooked.
- Split the muffins in half with a fork before toasting.
You can omit the raisins or even the cinnamon if you prefer. Add other dried fruit instead, as well.

[…] want to have it every morning on a slice of bread/toast, a muffin or crumpet, especially if you’re using homemade […]
Thank you very much for your recipe (English person living in France here and craving just this sort of treat)
Muffins are sometimes available in French supermarkets in the ‘exotic foods’ aisle!! But they are dreadful stale additive ridden longlife creations, not to mention 4 times the price.
I must beg to differ about them being virtually unknown in the UK though- they’re everywhere! We don’t, as I am sure you know very well, refer to them as ‘English’ muffins, simply ‘muffins’ and either refer to your cake-like variety as the American muffin, or just let context explain which is which and what to expect (fried egg in a split double chocolate muffin anyone? No, didn’t think so..). Looking forward to making these this afternoon very much :-)
Oh I missed this comment, Eleanor, but so glad you found the recipe. I must be missing something as I have spent over 6 weeks in the UK this year along, and will be going back next month and have never seen these in Tesco, Sainsbury’s M & S or any other shop! Need to look closer next time.
I love homemade English muffins and haven’t made them in ages! Thanks for inspiring me to do so, and for the intro to Susan’s recipe. While I have made hundreds of English muffins, I have never made cinnamon raisin. Now is the time, right? Continue enjoying your adventures!
I’m sure your English Muffins would be incredibly delicious, David. You should definitely follow Sue’s blog as you and she are both two of my favorite bloggers!
WOW, those look so much better than the ones you buy in the store! I never thought about making them until now. Thanks for the inspiration.
I’m surprised you’ve never made them, Cathy, but when you do, they’ll be a showstopper for sure! :)
Wow, your sure are all over the place…last I knew you were in Italy… How wonderful for you! I have to realize that it is like us in the states, going from state to state, instead you are going from country to country. Safe travels… Well these English muffins are fabulous. I have to check out Sue’s “the view from great island.” I love a good English Muffin especially as I love raisins. Thanks for the share. Your photos from Italy are awesome and I love the fact that you are going to attend the BBC Good Food Show in Scotland. Keep sending us photos of your travels….I am following you for sure, but miss you back home….Enjoy!!
I am finally home, Dottie! Thank you for following along, and yes, there will be many more photos to follow! Hope you are well! CC
I am missing you so much — hurry home!
Thanks, Sue! I’m home, finally! :)
