I made some delicious English Muffin Bread- it was so good I thought I would share the recipe!

The recipe came from the book shown in the background. What a great book! Full of traditional recipes and craft ideas.

Here's the recipe:

5 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups warm milk (110 to 115 degrees F)
1/2 cup warm water (120 to 130 degrees F)

In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt and baking soda. Add warm milk and water; beat on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Stir in remaining flour (batter will be stiff). Do not knead. Grease two 8-1/2-in. x 4-1/2-in. x 2-1/2-in. loaf pans. Sprinkle pans with cornmeal. Spoon batter into the pans and sprinkle cornmeal on top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans immediately to cool on wire racks.

Look, you can see the nooks and crannies! YUM!

That looks awesome, I'll have to try that recipe too! I've been making a lot of bread in my machine lately but have been wanting to try it the traditional way, so maybe I will start with this recipe. I also want to comment on your last was interesting getting to know you a little better through your answers, thanks for doing that. Also, it's funny you wrote about being a goat judge...I just told Shaun this weekend that when we move into the "farm" next door I want to get a goat! I'll have to get some advice from you since I know nothing about them.
I hope you had a great weekend, take care~Carol
