If you’re new to bread baking, this recipe is for you! It’s essentially a no fail recipe that will create the best toasting bread ever! The best part, you’ll only need 5 simple ingredients!
2¾ cups warm water
1½ packages RAPID RISE Yeast
1 Tablespoon salt
1½ Tablespoons sugar
5½ cups All Purpose Flour
We’ll have to start by saying this one is just super difficult.
First, you measure all the ingredients into a bowl, then mix them together.
Spoon the (very sticky dough) into 2 well greased loaf pans.
If you’d like you can take it a step further by dusting the greased pans with cornmeal. This is completely optional and not required, but it’s what my mom used to do, so it’s what I do.
Cover with a towel, let rise in pans until dough reaches the top of the pans (about half an hour or so).
Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
About 10 minutes before the loaves are done, brush them generously with melted butter.
English Muffin loaf bread is very moist when it’s hot. It should be allowed to COOL COMPLETELY before cutting or else you’ll end up with a mushy mess.
English muffin bread is also meant to be TOASTED before it’s eaten.
After all, how many English muffins have you eaten without toasting them first?!
