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?!

Loving this! I make breakfast sandwiches with english muffins and this would be cheaper and I would know what we are eating. Looks simple enough for a novice baker too!
Thanks! Blessings and Peace:coffeebath:
My family loves toast for a quick breakfast, and they also love English muffins, But they go through them so fast not to mention they will blow through the bread as well. This will be a cheap fix to my breakfast world. They love the toast but I can cut the cost on breakfast sandwiches as well.
Thanks I cannot wait to try this one out.
Anxious to try this. Hubby loves English muffins for breakfast and I have a make ahead breakfast casserole that calls for English muffins that I’ll use this in,
Thanks for posting this!
cant wait to try this! I have yet to master using yeast! I am determined to do so and this would be great to start with!:stars:
Are u sure the ingredients and measurements are correct? Followed this recipe exactly and was not even close to being as runny looking as the picture shows on here. Has anyone tried this recipe?
I Make this exact recipe weekly and it comes out just like it’s pictured here. The amounts are correct. Is your yeast alive??
Yes, I’ve made this recipe several times and I’ve never had any problems with the measurements as they’re listed. It’s Delish! Keep in mind that English Muffin Loaf isn’t the same texture as regular bread, nor is it the same flavor.
They actually turned out pretty good. They didnt rise as high as I hoped they might but overall they were really good. I only questioned the recipe because my dough looked nothing like the pictures posted which was runny looking and looked as though it was poured into the bread pans.
Mine was more like a large ball of dough. Plus none of the comments posted at that time had stated that anyone had actually made it. I was concerned that my efforts were in vein as I was really looking forward to having some English muffin toast slathered in butter and grape jam.
🙂 I’m just curious though if anyone else’s dough did the same or if it really matters.
Put the flour in the bowl first. Mix the yeast salt and sugar with the water in a desperate bowl then pour it over the flour. Mix it for just a few seconds.it works perfect.
Ivdid and it was like a regular dough so I added more water. It’s rising now so I will see how it bakes
Put the flour in a bowl alone.mix the yeast salt and sugar in a separate bowl with the hot water then pour it over the flour. Only mix it for maybe 20 seconds. It comes out perfect.
success every time…..delicious, no fail recipe. I have also had great success with mixing in 6oz grated cheddar cheese into one half of the dough mix. Perfect 🙂
Do you really need to use 1.5 packets or could you get away with just one?
Can I freeze this bread? If so, what is the best way to do that?
I’ve been looking for this recipe for years! my mother used to make it when i was a kid and we loved toasting this bread on the cast iron stove every morning for breakfast.
this tastes just like mom used to make!
