English Muffin Bread

If you love English muffins, but find the shape and size leaves you wanting more, this is the bread for you. Sliced it can be used for sandwiches or toast.

5 1/2 cups warm water
6 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 tbsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
11 cups plain flour

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix just until incorporated. It will turn into a very wet, sticky dough. Leave the dough in the bowl and let it rise until double in size. Spoon this sticky dough into four well-greased loaf pans. Let rise in pans until dough reaches the top of the pan. Bake in a preheated 175 degree Celsius oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Ten minutes before done, brush with melted butter. Makes 4 loaves. Bread will be moist at first, allow it to cool completely before slicing. This bread freezes beautifully. I slice it before freezing and just take the number of slices I need from the freezer.

If the idea of four loaves of bread is overwhelming, you can easily and successfully halve the recipe to make two loaves of bread.

Cost: $2.15 for four loaves.

  1. When you say 4 loaves what size bread/loaf tin do you go by? Is it the standard small 20x10cm type? New to bread making in general and would like some guide to go by.
