“Nothing beats homemade muffins fresh off the griddle. These are light and airy. The recipe calls for 1 package dry yeast, depending on how active your sourdough is you may choose to eliminate it. As all sourdough is somewhat different experiment and see what works best for you. I use an Alaskan sourdough recipe. For mixing the dough I used my Kitchenaid Mixer and dough hook. This recipe comes from Best of the Best from Alaska Cookbook and I have made minor adjustments for personal taste.”
