English Muffin bread


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)

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.
