5 Ingredient Super Easy Homemade English Muffin Bread
  • 2½ cups warm water
  • 3½ teaspoons Active Dry Yeast (can use rapid rise)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  3. Stir with wooden spoon or with a Kitchen Aid Mixer using dough hook until the yeast is dissolved and the ingredients are mixed well.
  4. Carefully measure flour and add to mixture.
  5. Stir with wooden spoon, or mix together with Kitchen Aid stand mixer. The dough will begin to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  6. If you used rapid yeast skip down to dividing the dough into the loaf pans.

  13. Let dough rise until it touches the top of the loaf pans.
  14. Place loaf pans side by side in a preheated 350 degree oven for approx. 45 minutes. In my convection oven it took 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  15. Brush top with butter.
  16. Cool completely before slicing.
