English Muffin Bread

Oh my what a whirl wind couple weeks!  New job (more about that excited!), new camera, new Iphone and new computer on it's way...I am in technical pergatory!  

Thank heaven for bread...glorious bread with melted butter and jam.  (sorry no pictures of went too fast, my photo would have been a hand to mouth blur!)
With just a few ingredients, you can turn out some amazing bread with a texture similar to English muffins.  It toasts up perfect for days and makes remarkable french toast.

Now, I haven't been able to master my camera...or my Iphone for that matter but I got bread baby...I got bread.

 NOTE: I use a Kitchen Aid mixer with dough hook for all my bread recipes...but you can easily convert this to a bread machine recipe or just go on in there with your hands and mix it up!


1 package active dry yeast (1/4 oz)
1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees or just dip your finger, if its warm, it will work)
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons milk


Mix dry yeast, water and sugar in Kitchen Aid bowl.  Let sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.  Add remaining ingredients and knead in mixer for about 3-5 minutes until dough is smooth.

Add dough to oiled bowl,  cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size, about an hour.
Preaheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray. 
 Punch down dough and knead gently on a floured surface.
Place in loaf pan. 
Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. There is no salt in this recipe. I made it today and it definitely needs some. Is that correct or just an accident?

  2. Oh no! Totally my fault...I owe you a loaf of bread! I am so embarassed....:(

    1. Thank you Kathy for your quick response. No need to be embarrassed. Beautiful loaf of bread and I will definitely be making it again.
