I’m sure most of us are getting ready for Thanksgiving and possibly hosting company. When we have overnight guests in our home I like to be sure that I have food on hand that our guests can help themselves to in case they awake before me.
I love this recipe for English Muffin Bread. Back in the dark ages, before I got married, I took a cooking class at a community school. That’s where this recipe came from.
The bread is easy to make and it freezes very well. An added bonus for when those guests arrive. Just take a loaf out of the freezer the night before.
Combine 3 cups of flour, yeast, sugar, salt and baking soda. Heat liquids until very warm (120-130 degrees). Add to dry mixture, beat well. Stir in rest of flour to make a stiff batter. Spoon into two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pans that have been greased and dusted with cornmeal. Sprinkle tops with cornmeal. Cover: let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and cool. Slice and serve. Makes 16 slices per loaf
