English Muffin Bread

English Muffin Bread


  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons rapid rise yeast (2 packets)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 6 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • cornmeal



1. Pour warm water into the bowl of a mixer. Sprinkle yeast and then 1 Tablespoon sugar on top. Give the mixture a gentle stir.


2. Let sit 5 minutes, until bubbles come to the top.


3. Meanwhile, spray two bread pans with non-stick cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup of cornmeal into each pan. Shake pans around to completely coat the bottom and sides with cornmeal. Set aside.


4. Once yeast mixture has sat for 5 minutes, add flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and salt. Using the paddle attachment, mix until dough is completely combined. Dough should be sticky.


5. Divide dough in half and put 1/2 into each prepared bread pan.


6. Cover pans with a clean towel. Let rise in a warm place until bread doubles in size, about 1 hour.


7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake both loaves on middle rack for 30 minutes.


Spray hands really well with non-stick cooking spray to divide dough and put into bread pans. This will help keep the dough from sticking to your hands.
