English Muffin Loaf

Wendy Rusch


I came across this English Muffin Loaf in an old church cookbook. So I had to try, as I just love english muffin bread! Toasted with butter and a yummy jam! :o)
It is wonderful! Better than store bought of course, you know, because you made it yourself! lol And its easy...you don't need to be a bread maker to be able to make this!!!
