English Muffin bread recipe (split from Chopped thread, Food Media board)
Ever try making English Muffin Bread? It is so easy! It calls for yeast but you don't knead it. Just put it in a loaf pan and bake! It tastes just like the $pendy English Muffins you get at the store! So good with my home made blackberry jam from the berries that grow on my property! Life is good!
5 cups all purpose flour, divided
2 packages (1/4 oz each) active dry yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups warm milk (120 degrees to 130)
1/2 cup warm water (120 to 130 defrees)
In large mixing bowl combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt & baking soda. Add warm milk and water; beat on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Stir in remaining flour (batter will be stiff) DO NOT KNEAD! Grease two loaf pans. Sprinkle pans with cornmeal. Spoon batter into pans and sprinkle cornmeal on top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled; about 45 min. Bake at 375 for 35 min. or until golden brown. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire racks. Slice and toast! Enjoy!
