English Muffin Bread
I made this last week and it is one of the easiest bread recipes I’ve ever made. Once you mix up your dough it goes straight into the pans to raise. Once the bread has doubled in the pan, it goes straight into the oven. You are going to love how easy and versatile this bread is. It makes great grilled sandwiches and is perfect for toast.
This dough is not like a typical yeast bread. It is more of a batter, there is no way this could be kneaded. The dough will be thick and sticky. I added another 1/4 cup of flour when I made it, it is really going to depend on the weather that day how much flour you’ll need. I wouldn’t add more than 1/2 cup because this is really a yeast batter bread. Be sure also to use all purpose flour.
- 1 1/2 packages active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cups warm milk
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 5 cups all-purpose flour - I used 5 1/4 cups
- Add the yeast, warm water and sugar to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine and let set for 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbly.
- Add the honey and warm milk.
- Mix the flour, salt and baking soda together.
- Add it to the mixing bowl and stir until it is thoroughly mixed together. Batter will be really thick and sticky.
- Grease 2 bread pans. Sprinkle cornmeal on the bottom. Divide the batter between the 2 pans. Sprinkle a little additional cornmeal on top. Cover with a towel and let raise until doubled. (about 45 minutes)
- Bake at 375 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes. Loaves will be brown on top and sound hollow when tapped on the tops.
