English Muffin Bread


This recipe has been on my "To-Make" list for what seems like ages! Now that I have made it and discovered how easy and delicious it is I cannot believe I didn't make it sooner!


This bread is ridiculously easy! It's a wet dough so there's no kneading and you only have it rise once in the pan!


Instead of making the 4 loafs that this recipe creates I opted for 1 loaf and 2 dozen muffins! English Muffin Bread Muffins. Hah! They are perfect for bento lunches.

________________________________________________

Ingredients:

5 1/2 cups of warm water
4 1/2 TBSP RAPID RISE yeast (this is important)
2 TBSP salt
3 TBSP sugar
11 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 stick melted butter (for top)

1.) Pre-heat oven to 350

2.)  Mix water, yeast, salt, sugar, and flour until combined. The dough is going to be really sticky. You can do this in a mixer but add the flour carefully or you will be wearing most of the ingredients because they barely fit in a regular KitchenAid bowl.

3.) Divide dough among 4 bread loaf pans or as I did among 1 loaf pan and 2 - 12 count muffin pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray

4.) Let rise in pan for approximately 20-30 minutes or until the dough is at the top of the pans

5.) Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes for the muffins and 30-40 minutes for the loaf

6.) Let rest 10 minutes and then brush with melted butter

7.) Let it cool if you can and then slice and enjoy!

  8. Rising right now! I cut it in half and did one muffin pan and one loaf. Thinking it will be hard to not slice it hot out of the oven!
