You read that right… ENGLISH MUFFIN BREAD! Ok I am a CARB junkie and I love toast, I Love english muffins…what could be better than english muffin toast?! Very few things.
When I found this recipe on pinteresthttp://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/02/moms-english-muffin-bread.html I knew I had to try it. Bonus is, is that this recipe is so easy to make, and is very fast for a bread recipe. It makes 4 loaves, you may think that is a lot…but you wait until you have devoured 2 loaves in the first day…it is not a lot!
what you will need:
5 1/2 cups warm water
3 packets rapid rise yeast (you can use regular, but will have to let rise twice)
2 tablespoons salt
3 tablespoons sugar
11 cups flour (i have used both bread and all-purpose both tun out great)
add all the ingredients together…no need to let yeast do its thing or wait, just add it all together and mix (how simple is that?!)
your dough should be quite sticky…not like regular silky tight bread dough
grease 4 loaf pans…mine were not the same size but they all baked just fine.
slop even amounts of the dough into each loaf pan…smaller pans got a little less
proof them in a warm spot until the dough reaches the top of the pans…dont let go much higher or it will fall. this took anywhere from a half an hour to an hour guess it depends on the yeasts mood.
then bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes….keep the oven on, brush the tops with melted butter and bake an additional 10 minutes
you will have these beauties!
let them cool
and enjoy….I like mine toasted, that is how you get the english muffin effect. Add jam, honey cinnamon sugar, nuttella…whatever. Just Enjoy!
