This came out perfect!  Fast, easy, and delicious.  The only change I made was to proof the yeast in the liquids instead of adding it to the dry ingredients.

Made this bread this morning, easy recipe. I warmed the milk mixture in the microwave instead of stove top. The 2 loaves rose nice and the bread tasted like real English muffins : ) I put the cornmeal on as well. Lovely bread !!! Will do this one often !!!
