Re: Bread Recipes?

This is yummy! We've stopped buying bread and make this each weekend instead. Very easy recipe.

English Muffin Loaf

A no-knead, chewy bread - good plain or toasted. Preparation time - a little over an hour.

2 pkgs. dry yeast
2 c. whole wheat flour
3 c. unbleached flour
1/2 c. wheat germ
2 tsp. salt
2 c. milk
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tbs. honey
2 tbs. margarine or butter

Heat milk; add honey and margarine - let cool. In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in milk mixture, wheat germ, whole wheat flour, 1 c. unbleached flour, salt and soda. Beat well.

Stir in rest of flour. Divide and spoon into 2 (8 1/2x 4 1/2 inch) loaf pans that are greased and sprinkled with cornmeal. Pat into place. Sprinkle cornmeal on tops. Cover with waxed paper; let rise in a warm place about 25 minutes. Be sure that dough does not rise to top of pan before baking; bake when dough reaches about 3/4 up side of pan.

Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 25 minutes. Cool on rack.
