  • English Muffin Bread Recipes

    I have been craving English muffins but no matter what brand I want to buy, they are ALL made with toxic ingredients to my IC bladder (i.e., vinegar, soy flour, thiamin mononitrate, calcium propionate, and sorbic acid). I've tried to eat them.. and have suffered. So imagine my delight when I stumbled across some recipes for English Muffin bread!! One recipe describes the bread like this: "English Muffin Bread is basically an English Muffin in bread form. English muffins have been around for a while and date back to the 10th century. English muffin bread has a coarser texture than regular bread and is delicious! The best part is that it makes great toast. The coarseness of the bread, when toasted, provides the perfect backdrop for butter, marmalade, jam or whatever you want to put on it." I read that and my mouth started watering!! I had all the ingredients so I followed the first recipe and have two loaves prepared and rising in bread pans right now!!

    I. My Mom’s Wonderful English Muffin Bread!
    Makes 4 regular loaves or 8 mini-loaves of bread


    • 5 1/2 cups warm water
    • 3 packages RAPID RISE yeast
    • 2 Tablespoons salt
    • 3 Tablespoons sugar
    • 11 cups flour (U can use bread flour or All-Purpose. If you sub wheat flour use 2/3 bread flour and 1/3 wheat bread flour)
    Note: (You can use regular yeast, but you will need to let is rise TWICE. Once in the bowl, till it reaches the top…and then again in the pans, till it reaches the top. With the RAPID RISE yeast you only need to let it rise once in the pans.) Water should be between 120-130 degrees.


    1. Mix ingredients all together (mix only enough to combine). Dough will be very sticky.
    2. Spoon into 4 regular-sized, well-greased loaf pans or 8 mini-loaf pans.
    3. Let rise in pans until dough reaches the top of the pans.
    4. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown. 10 minutes before done, brush with melted butter. Bread will be moist at first. Allow to COOL COMPLETELY before cutting. Makes terrific toast.

    I only wanted two loaves so I divided all the ingredients in half.

    II. English Muffin Bread
    Makes 1 loaf of bread


    • 3 C flour
    • 1 Tbsp sugar
    • 1½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp baking soda
    • 1 Tbsp active dry yeast
    • 1 C milk
    • ¼ C water
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • cornmeal, to sprinkle in pan


    1. Mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and yeast in a large bowl.
    2. Combine milk, water and oil in a pan and heat to 120-130. Use a thermometer to be accurate. The liquid will feel quite hot (hotter than lukewarm but not too hot!)
    3. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients
    4. Mix for 1-2 minutes or until dough is soft.
    5. Lightly grease a 8½ x 4½ bread pan and sprinkle with cornmeal.
    6. Scoop the dough into the pan and level it off.
    7. Cover the pan and allow to rise until the dough is about ¼" above the rim of the pan. (about one hour)
    8. Preheat oven to 400 and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bread is golden brown.
    9. Allow to sit in pan for 5 minutes to cool and then remove to a rack for further cooling. Let bread cool before slicing.

    Comments I've read state that both breads freeze well (up to 6 months). I can't wait for it to come out of the oven so I can slather a piece with Earth Balance and Pear Delight jam!

    Sounds yummy and I love baking bread. I think I'll try cutting the recipe in half so I can use my big mixer.
