I found this recipe for "English muffin bread". So, since I had the bread machine out to make pizza dough I figured I'd make a loaf of bread. And while looking around for a recipe. I found
this. English muffin bread. I figured why not?
The recipe looked simple.

  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup (55g to 74g) water
  • 1 cup (227g) lukewarm milk
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) butter or 2 tablespoons (24g) vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (9g) salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 1/2 cups (418g)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
Throw all this into a bread machine. Set the bread machine for a large loaf. And on light setting.


Made this yesterday.


This morning I sliced a couple slices to check it out.


There does appear to have more "nooks and crannies" Bread is soft and looks to have the proper moisture content. But it doesn't seem to be like a English muffin. Yet.
So I put some in the toaster for the true test. And warmed up some ham off the bone with cheese,



After toasting the bread. I can see why they call it this. It got nice and crispy on the outside while still being moist and chewy on the inside. The little voids are there. And doing what they should. Holding the little pools of butter. While I don't think it ranks right up there with a English muffin. It is a real good tasting bread. And the sandwich was delicious.
The Bread looks good. We used to be able to get this in a grocery where we used to live. It to was as you describe, good but not exactly that close to and English Muffin. Ive made scratch English Muffins that too were very tasty but if you use Thomas'English Muffins as your standard, they are not that close...JJ

Excellent Steve! That bread looks amazing and the sandwich to top it off. What's not to like? Just hope we see more amazing bread posts from you!
Looks damned good Steve and the sandwich is tasty as heck I bet. Bread appears to be light and airy but firm enough to hold up to a good sammie. Next you need to try some sourdough. That makes for some really good sandwiches also.

Very nice Steve, I could eat the whole loaf! Do you think if you substituted seltzer for the water it might make bigger nooks and crannies?
