"This is a recipe I found on twoazoreanchicks Two Azorean Chicks Blog site. This is very similar to an English Muffins although a bit sweeter and if you want a even more sweeter version, add a splash (or to taste) of vanilla extract."
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water with a pinch of the sugar. Set aside to ferment, about 10 minutes.
Transfer the yeast mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the sugar, eggs, salt, flour, and milk until the dough comes together. Stir in the melted butter, then turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead for about 10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. You can also use your mixer or bread machine to do the kneading for you!
Cover dough with a cloth and set aside to rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or longer. The weather really plays with you on the rising!
Divide dough into about 15 to 20 pieces, and shape them into flat round cakes about 1/2 inch thick. Place a cloth on the table and dust it with flour. Arrange the cakes on the cloth, allowing space for rising. Allow them to set for 1 1/2 hours or longer. Once you see they are the right size and have gotten bigger they are ready. Once again, that weather!
Place the cakes in a heavy ungreased skillet, and cook over low heat. Fry the cakes on each side until golden.
If the cakes start to burn but are still a little too under-cooked for your liking, throw them onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 5-10 minutes.
