Sprinkle dry yeast or crumble cake yeast into water. Let stand for a few minutes; then stir until dissolved. Add sugar, salt, and butter to warm milk, stirring to dissolve; cool to lukewarm. Add egg, yeast mixture and flour and beat thoroughly. Let batter rise in warm place for 30 minutes; with spoon beat for 3 minutes.
Pour batter into greased 4 inch muffin rings on medium hot greased griddle (325 degrees on electric griddle) filling rings one third full.
Remove, cool, split, and toast.
