Pinterest Picked - English Muffin Bread

Who hasn't heard of Pinterest!  It's the booming idea board for millions of creative (and not so creative!) minds to steal ideas from one-another!  Pinterest can be agonizing for the perfectionist but can rescue those that struggle to envision details!!

I've pinned exactly 215 recipes in the past 14 months.

When I joined, I never realized how HARD it would be to actually USE these pins!

So, I have started actually making some of these pinned recipes!  I will post all about those that have succeeded and even those that will inevitably fail!

My first recipe, is a complete success!  It's even addicting in my household.  Bread, glorious bread!

Who doesn't love a good english muffin?  Those nooks and crannies full of buttery goodness! Who wants to pay almost $4.00 for 6 muffins?  NOT ME!

Here is a wonderful recipe for English Muffin Bread.  It's amazing toasted, with your favorite spread.  I adore butter and honey, or some homemade apple butter.  YUM!

English Muffin Bread (printable recipe)

2 3/4 cups warm water
1 1/2 packages or teaspoons RAPID RISE yeast
(Update: You can use regular yeast, but you will need to let is rise TWICE. Once in the bowl, til it reaches the top…and then again in the pans, til it reaches the top. With the RAPID RISE you only need to let it rise once in the pans.)
1 Tablespoons salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar or honey
5 1/2 cups flour

Mix all ingredients together, then spoon into (2) well greased loaf pans.

Let rise in pans until dough reaches the top of the pans, and bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown. (My oven runs a little hot so I ended up cooking mine for a total of 35 minutes. Just keep an eye on it. You’re looking for golden brown.) 

10 minutes before done, brush with melted butter. 

Makes 2 loaves. Bread will be moist at first. Allow to COOL COMPLETELY before cutting. Makes delicious toast.

It's bubbly, rose to the top and is ready for the oven!
