My husband loves English Muffins...I don't. This bread is yummy and he's learned to compromise.

Serves:

1 loaf

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

3 c
all purpose unbleached flour
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
instant yeast
1 c
milk
1/4 c
water
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
cornmeal

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and instant yeast in a large mixing bowl.
2
Combine the milk, water, and oil in a separate, microwave-safe bowl, and heat to between 100°F and 120°F. Be sure to stir the liquid well before measuring its temperature; you want an accurate reading. If you don't have a thermometer, the liquid will feel quite hot (hotter than lukewarm), but not so hot that it would be uncomfortable to the touch.
3
Pour the hot liquid over the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.
4
Beat at high speed for 1 minute. The dough will be very soft.
5
Lightly grease an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan, and sprinkle the bottom and sides with cornmeal.
6
Scoop the soft dough into the pan, leveling it in the pan as much as possible.
7
Cover the pan, and let the dough rise till it's just barely crowned over the rim of the pan. About 45 minutes to an hour.
8
Preheat the oven to 400°F while dough is rising.
9
Remove the cover from the risen dough, and bake the bread for 22 to 27 minutes, till it's golden brown.
10
Remove the bread from the oven, and after 5 minutes turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool. Let the bread cool completely before slicing.
