Just like the original English muffins, but in loaf form!


  • ¼ cup (60 gm) lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 21/4 cups milk, lukewarm
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • Cornmeal


  1. Combine the water, honey, and yeast in a large bowl of a stand mixer. Allow the yeast to dissolve. Add in one cup of flour and the milk, stirring to combine. Add in the remaining flour, the salt, and the baking soda, and beat on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  2. Lightly grease two 8”x4” loaf pans and dust them with cornmeal. Dump half of the thin dough into each prepared pan. Cover with a tea towel and allow to rise in a warm spot in the kitchen until the loaves dome an inch outside of the pan.
  3. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Once the loaves have risen, bake in the preheated oven about 20-22 minutes or until the tops are golden and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and cool about 15 minutes in the pan. Remove from the pan and cool completely. Serve bread toasted and sliced.
