English muffin bread has all the nooks and crannies without all the work. This bread comes together very easily and is just like an English muffin.
I have always enjoyed a good English Muffin with strawberry preserves on it for breakfast. While searching for the perfect English Muffin recipe, I came across this amazing idea of making bread with all those nooks and crannies. It’s brilliant! No shaping the dough into perfect, or not so perfect, muffins.
The recipe makes four loaves of English Muffin Bread, which sounds like a lot until you have tried it. You may start to wonder why it only makes four loaves! I will include a scaled down ingredient list for making just one loaf of this delicious bread because I don’t expect you to make four loaves without trying it out first. This bread is incredibly easy to make and comes together very quickly.
This bread couldn’t be easier. All you do is mix everything together and divide it up between four loaf pans and let it rise. I have made this with bread flour and all purpose flour and it works well either way. I have also used different types of yeast, like active rise and quick rise. Use whatever you have and make yourself some delicious bread.
