English Muffin Bread – a quick, yeasted loaf bread that comes together in minutes and tastes just like a toasted English muffin!
A post on a Tuesday? Whaaaat?
I mentioned in my last post that life has been getting away from me a bit lately and I’ve been struggling to keep up with everything. I hate admitting that I’m falling behind, but I know it’s just because I’ve been pushing myself to stay busy lately, and that’s a good thing. I’d much rather be busy than bored.
So this post is a day late, but it’s such a good one that I didn’t want to wait until my next usual posting day to hit publish. This English Muffin Bread is hands-down the easiest bread recipe I’ve ever made, and it’s so delicious that it might become a weekly staple in my house.
The dough comes together in literally 2 minutes, there’s no kneading, and the rise time is super short. This bread is perfect for bread-baking beginners or anyone who wants to make homemade bread but doesn’t have a lot of time. This bread has a light, airy texture and a good crunchy crust. Toast it and add some butter and jam? I’m obsessed.
English Muffin Bread
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1 Tbsp. instant yeast
- 1 cup nondairy milk, such as Silk
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- Sift together the dry ingredients (flour, salt, and baking soda) and add to the bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle the sugar and yeast over top and mix well.
- In a measuring cup, combine the wet ingredients (milk, water, and oil) and heat to 125ºF. Pour the warm liquid over the dry ingredients and knead for 2 minutes.
- Pour the dough into a greased 9″x5″ loaf pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 1 hour. The bread should be risen only slightly above the rim of the pan (however, my dough was way taller and it turned out just fine!).
- When the dough is almost done rising, preheat the oven to 400ºF.
- Uncover the bread and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
