English Muffin Bread Recipe
  • Grease 2 pans lightly. Sprinkle with cornmeal to coat the bottom and sides of the pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine 3 cups of flour, yeast and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat and stir milk, water, sugar and salt just until warm (120°-130°F.)
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture.
  • Stir in the remaining 3 cups of flour.
  • Sprinkle a work surface with a little flour, dump the dough out and finish incorporating the ingredients with your hands.
  • Divide the dough in half and place each in a prepared bread pan.
  • Sprinkle the tops with some more cornmeal.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and allow it to rise in a warm setting until it is doubled in size, approximately 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Bake approximately 25 minutes or until golden. The dough will not rise to the top.
