English Muffin Bread


I've been meaning to try this bread for a long time now and with no other plans, I decided tonight was the perfect night to bake up a loaf.   The recipe below makes 2 loaves of this bread, I halved the recipe below with no issues at all, but will include the full recipe.

Ingredients
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. water
  • cornmeal
  • 6 c. flour
  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 1 tbs. white sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
 Directions
  • Warm the milk and water in microwave until very warm (125 degrees F). 
  • Lightly grease (I used Non-stick baking spray) two 8x4 inch loaf pans; sprinkle cornmeal evenly on bottom and sides.
  • In a bowl or bowl of stand mixer, mix together 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt & soda. 
  • Stir milk into the flour mixture; beat well. 
  • Stir in the remaining flour, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff batter is formed. (I used my dough hook in my mixer until it was just combined.)
  • Spoon batter into prepared pans (I shaped into a rough loaf and put in the pan). 
  • Cover & let rise in a warm place for until nearly doubled in size, about an hour. 
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from pans immediately & cool on a rack.
