Wolferman's English muffins?

michelle71 Nov 6, 2007 05:10 AM

I'm not sure if this is the right board for this...
Has anyone tried the Wolferman's catalog English Muffins? They look fantastic. My husband is a huge English Muffin fan and I though I would get him some if they are worth it.

    we went thru a wolferman's phase over 20 years ago - they are good, but expensive! we decided that there were not good enough to keep on ordering them. personally, we like thomas's just fine!

      I tried them a while ago & found them dough-y and too heavy for our taste...

        Jfood went through the Wolferman syndrome about 20 years ago as well. They were very difficult to fit into a normal toaster as they were too thick and for the extra price just did not justify the price delta over Thomas'. Likewise to get the middle cooked to Jfood's liking, it was very difficult.

        Now Jfood likes the Thomas' Multi-grain Lites.

        Since he has not tried in a score the data is very dusty, but would rather have two Thomas' then a Fat-Wolferman's

          We got one of those gift of the month things from there about 10 years ago. The English Muffins were good - I prefer the flavored ones to the standard plain ones. The crumpets were my favorite item out of the things they sent us.

            I don't have any experience with Wolferman's but, if you'd like to try baking him an English Muffin loaf, I'm happy to share a very simple recipe. And I'm much more a cook than a baker, so you can be assured it doesn't take a lot of expertise. The recipe makes two loaves and you just cut off a few slices at a time and toast them. If it's just the two of us, I usually freeze the second loaf and, when we need it, let it defrost at room temp. But if our extended family is around for the weekend, two loaves are a necessity. Let me know here if you're interested and I'll post the recipe on the Home Cooking board when I get home from work tonight.

                Okay. I'll email myself a reminder to post the recipe this evening.

                We were given some ... hideous. Threw the rest away. Doughy, flavorless, nothing like a bread of any sort ought to taste.

                  If it's worth anything, several of my English ex-pat friends love Wolferman's English muffins-moreso than Thomas's. They tend to slather Wolferman's thick muffins (toasted) with an obscene amount of butter and then top with jam or marmite.

                  It's quite good that way.

                    I have had these in past and I enjoyed them. Richie
