English Muffin Bread
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Kirk Pearson)
This is an easy and delicious 'breakfast toast' bread.
Makes: 2 loaves
2 packages of yeast
6 cups flour (5 cups if you use a microwave)
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup water
Combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Heat liquids
until very warm (120-130 F). Add liquids to dry mixture; beat well. Stir
in the rest of the flour to make a stiff batter. Grease 2 loaf pans and
sprinkle them with cornmeal. Spoon the dough into the pans. Cover and let
rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
Oven: bake at 400 F for 25 minutes. Remove loaves from pans immediately
and let cool.
Microwave: microwave each loaf on high for 6 minutes, 30 seconds. Allow
the loaf to rest for 5 minutes before removing it from pan.
WARNING: Do NOT use metal loaf pans if you use a microwave, for obvious
This bread makes an excellent breakfast toast. My favorite way to eat it is
in thick slices cooked on a broiler pan with butter and cinnamon sugar.
Cinnamon sugar is just plain table sugar with cinnamon mixed in until the
sugar turns to a light brown.
