Cooking Thursday

 The recipe I have for you today is not my own.  Last week my sister Cheri - who is a great cook - dropped off a loaf of bread.  It was English Muffin Bread and was so good!  We toasted it and had it for breakfast.  She gave me the recipe to share with you and she said it's easy to make! 


English Muffin Bread

5 1/2 cups warm water
3 packages (24 grams total) active dry yeast
2 tablespoons salt
3 tablespoons sugar
11 cups bread flour or all purpose flour

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until incorporated.  Leave to rise until double in size.  Divide dough between 4 bread pans and let rise unit it reaches the top of the pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Brush tops with melted butter, then bake another 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow to cool.  Best if enjoyed toasted.
This bread freezes well - or you can make someone happy by sharing a loaf with them!

That is a gorgeous loaf of bread! I don't use yeast much these days, so if I could, I'd run over to your house for a slice and a nice visit!

Wow that sounds like a lot of reward for very little risk or effort! You had me at "toasted" ... recipe duly copied! Thanks, Mari and thanks, Cheri!

Gosh, that looks good. I can almost smell that sweet aroma! You know we eat keto (low carbs/no sugar). Well, I've been buying a bread made by Sola. It's low carbs no sugar and tastes so good but I miss that heavenly aroma of homemade bread. Yum.
Blessings. xx

The bread looks delicious! A recipe maybe even I can do. I've always wanted to bake bread. The backyard campout with the girls was such a fun post. Grandpa is amazing. Well, you both are.
