Try This Bread

05 February 2013

When I have a lot to accomplish (whether with work or around the house), I tend to find the most happiness in the kitchen, putting off my to-do list, and baking something yummy.  Enter...English Muffin Bread

I know that I have mentioned it on this blog before, but seriously people...make this bread. 

You can find the recipe here at One Good Thing.  It is divine, and you need it in your life.

There are only five ingredients: water, yeast, sugar, salt, flour.  You mix 'em, let 'em sit, and bake 'em. 

This is the bread rising in the pan after mixing.  No kneading.  Look at all those nooks and crannies getting ready for butter.

I would share the half recipe I use with you but this happened...

This was Stage 1 of a three part process to disorganize the recipe box. 
...so you will have to rely on those 5th grade math skills and halve the recipe yourself if only making two loaves.

If you must make it healthier, you can.  I made it a couple of times by using half wheat and half white flour.  I have also added ground flax seed. 

Just like Jillee says though...toast it and put on butter and honey, and you discover a new plane of living in which colors are brighter and songs are sweeter (okay, no guarantees about the colors and songs, but you will be happier, and who knows, it could happen). 

Just make the bread.

Then tell me how happy you are in the comments.

  1. Court is momma's little helper/terror. I love this picture. I really did LOL. still smiling big...

    Now, about this color enhancing, music evoking wonder bread... the recipe make two loaves??? so half would only yield one loaf, correct. (fifth grade math at work here!!) Have you tried freezing a loaf? Would you store in frig? and do you bake it in flat pans or bread pans? [can you tell I've never made/baked bread before?) I want to try it... how could I not after the way you described it. Note to self-grocery list: honey and yeast. This would be perfect for the upcoming snowy weekend.

    1. Under no circumstances would I call her my terror, but recipe box disorganizer for sure.

      The original recipe yields 4 loaves, so half yields 2 loaves (baked in bread pans). I would recommend make two loaves. You will eat the first one within hours, and you will need the other one to have with breakfast the next morning. I have not tried freezing a loaf, but see no reason why it wouldn't work.

      It will take a little elbow grease to mix up if not using a stand mixer (a hand mixer won't be able to handle the volume), but that just equals calories burned that can be used to justify all the butter and honey.
