English muffin bread

itsmejessica Mar 2, 2013 05:40 AM

My mom loved toast,she ate every morning. All diffrent types of bread. The one I remember best is English muffin bread it was the best toast.Crispy never got soggy no matter how much butter you put on it. I don't eat bread but I cannot stop thinking of that toast. My mom has been gone 9 years now. She bought it. I'm not sure were. I went in search of a recipe,found one. Has any one here made English Muffin Bread? Is it as good I'm remembering? I don't want to make the bread but I think I have to,maybe then this craving will stop.

      I recently made English muffin bread from a recipe floating around Pinterest. And, yes, it was delicious. I don't really like English muffins, but the bread was great. I especially liked it because I'm still struggling with yeast breads and this was so easy with such good results. I hope you are able to satisfy your craving. :)

        The recipe I found seems pretty easy. But I might just buy a loaf. I looked online my local Kroger bakes it. It really seems easier.

          If you have a Publix near you they make a very good one. Hope you find what you're looking for

          I don't know where you are but Country Hearth English Muffin bread is widely avaiable in my area (MN). I used to buy it to make BLTs precisely for the non-soggy attributes you described. Unfortunately the recipe appears to have changed a few years ago and now it seems to have lost its crunch and resembles regular supermarket bread. Making it yourself might be your best option.

            I made the recipe, very easy. So yummy and the toast was great and crunchy just I remembered. The recipe made 4 loaves. So I cut the recipe in half. I don't need 4loaves around. I gave the second loaf to an neighbor. My husband liked it too he had never heard of English muffin bread. We don't eat a lot of bread in our house. So I sliced up the rest and wrapped up and tossed in freezer. It will be a nice treat, when pesky bread cravings creep up again. Thanks for all your input.

              What recipe did you use, I'd like to make it and feel better about using one someone else has made. Thanks in advance

                  I got it from a blog called 'One good thing by Jillee" It really was easy and so good.
                  51/2 C warm water
                  3 pkgs rapid rise yeast
                  2T salt
                  11C flour
                  mix all together spoon into 4 greased loaf pans let it rise till dough reaches top of pan. bake at 350 for 45 min 10 min before done brush with melted butter. let cool completely before cutting into bread she says they will crumble up if hot.
                  I hope it works for you like Isaid 4 loaves was to many so I cut recipe in half. happy toasting best toast ever.I had one slice with just butter the other with cherry preserves mmmm so good.
                  On the blog the recipe is titled "Carole's English Muffin Bread."

              I love the English Muffin Bread on the King Arthur Flour site, I seldom make any other. Usually this or rye bread. It is good toasted or not.
