English Muffin Bread

We've made it to Thursday!  It's Pizza Night!! Yeah!!

However, since I've already posted my pizza dough recipe, I'll just post a recipe for this yummy English Muffin Bread - it's wonderful for breakfast or toasted sandwiches because it toasts up so well.

English Muffin Bread
6 c flour
2 pkg instant yeast
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 c warm milk
1/2 c warm water

Mix 1 cup of flour with yeast, sugar, salt, and baking soda.  Add milk and water.  Mix well for about 5 minutes.  Add rest of flour, 1/2 cup at a time to make sticky dough.  Form into 2 loaves and place in greased loaf pans, sprinkled with cornmeal.  Spray top of dough loaves with cooking spray and sprinkle with cornmeal.  Let rise for 45 minute and then bake in a 400 degree oven for 25-35 minutes.

Here's one of the loaves before it began rising.

The loaves in this picture are small because my mixer won't hold any recipe that requires 6 cups of flour.  I halved the recipe to make two small loaves. You could also make 1 large loaf.
