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.
English Muffin Bread: Adapted from One Good Thing by Jillee
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!
