English muffin bread



An English ( meaning British, in this case) person would probably tell me that this really is not English, but in the United States there are breads you can buy that are called,”English Muffins” that are absolutely fabulous with just about anything. I really don’t know the origin of the recipe or why it is called, “English”, but I DO know it is fabulous, easy and yes, better than anything in a package. Try it and decide for yourself. It is great with anything sweet or savoury. I like toasting it a bit first!

1 cup milk

1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon cornmeal

3 cups bread flour

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

1-1/2 teaspoons white sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

  1. I am English but have never heard of “muffin bread”, but of course we do have “English muffins” that are round, flattened bread buns! However, this looks beyond amazing and right up my street – will definitely be trying this!
