Servings 8


  • 3 c. Flour
  • 2 1/2 t. Yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 2 t. Sugar
  • 1 t. Salt
  • 1/8 t. Baking powder
  • 1 c. Milk
  • 1/4 c. Water
  • Corn meal (for dusting loaf pan)


  • In a mixing bowl, combine 2 c. flour, yeast, sugar, salt and baking powder. Mix for 1 minute.
  • While flour is mixing, pour milk and water into a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until just warm, about 2 minutes. Pour into mixing bowl and beat for 2 minutes.
  • Add remaining cup of flour, 1/2 a cup at a time, and mix for 3-5 minutes (or knead by hand for 5-7 minutes). Dough will be somewhat sticky.
  • Grease a loaf pan and sprinkle with cornmeal. Spread dough into pan, cover and let rise for 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.


  • You can use this recipe for making traditional English muffins if you’d like. Add an extra 1/2 c. of flour to the dough and shape on a well-floured surface. Let rise on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. You should get about 6 muffins.
  • English Muffin Bread freezes beautifully. I like to slice it before freezing so that I can pull out just a slice or two at a time and throw them in the toaster.
  • You can easily double or triple this recipe.
