  • 2 Cups Milk Warmed
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast or 1 package yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 1/2 - 6 cups flour
  • corn meal for dusting


  • In a stand mixer, combine milk, yeast and sugar. Let sit for 5 minutes until bubbly.
  • Stir in butter, eggs, salt.
  • Add flour, 1 cup at a time.
  • Continue adding flour until dough comes together. You might not add the full amount of flour. This dough will be a bit stickier than most doughs.
  • Knead for 5 minutes with machine.
  • Place dough in a large, greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled.
  • Divide dough into 18 pieces. Form into balls, and flatten. Place on a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal.
  • Let rise for 20-30 minutes.
  • Preheat a cast iron skillet. Cook muffins 10-15 minutes until done. Flip muffins as needed during cooking to avoid burning.
  • Let cool on a wire rack.
  • Once cool, split muffins with a fork.


1. This dough is wetter and stickier than most yeast doughs.
2. Use a paddle hook to mix, rather than a dough hook.
3. Use corn meal, semolina flour, or flour on pan to help prevent sticking.
