English Muffin Bread & Video

We love bread in our home, oh yes, we do! But do I bake bread???? Oh goodness no…too difficult, too time consuming….too…oh I don’t know….Scary!! Why is it so scary Nettie???

Because, what if I fail, what if it tastes like wood chips and is hard as a rock??? What if, what if….But then one day I was happily scrolling through Pinterest and there it was ….. a dreamy loaf of English Muffin Bread, “Fool Proof “, it said, “Easiest Recipe Ever”, it said, “5 Ingredients”!!!

Oh yeah, sure, right, Fool Proof….this I’ve got to try, ONE GOOD THING by Jillee, I am trying it, I think I held my breath most of the way, it smelled amazing, it was only 5 ingredients that you can whip up in your Kitchen Aid, EASY EASY EASY!!! I did it!!

This bread reminds me of the fabulous English Muffin Bread that we used to get at Cappy’s Bakery in Camden Maine, but they stopped making it and I was devastated!! But no longer, I can make this bread, anytime!! I am over my Bread Fear!!

Thank you Jillee!! In Jillee’s recipe, she makes 4 Loaves of bread, I halved her recipe to make 2, but go ahead and double the recipe if you like!!



5 Easy Ingredients: Flour, Sugar, Salt, Rapid Rise Yeast and Water!
Place all ingredients in a Kitchen Aid and mix until just blended.
Just takes about a minute, don’t over beat.
Looks perfect, make sure to get every drop of this gorgeous dough!
Dough is super sticky!
Grease two Loaf Pans
I told you this was sticky and did I mean it!!
Divide dough into 2 Loaf Pans ( 9″x5″). Cover and place over your oven or a warm spot and let dough rise to the top, it doubles in size!
After an hour it has risen!! So excited, I really can’t tell you!!
Bread Dough is ready to go in the oven.
10 minutes before bread is done ( Golden Brown) Brush Melted Butter over the top.
Your Bread should look like this, Golden Brown.
I think I have more pictures of my very first bread baked from scratch than my kids…just kidding kids….. kidding kids…hahaha
Let bread cool completely before cutting, it was torturing my son to wait until the bread was completely cool, but believe me, it is worth the wait!!
If you can’t wait, just take a picture of your bread like I did!
Doesn’t it look gorgeous? I know, just keep waiting for it to cool, go get a fun magazine to take your mind off of the amazing aroma….
Cappy’s Bakery eat your heart out, not really, just be jealous, a little…

I have made bread dough in my bread maker before and then baked it in the oven. May try this method. Does the bread freeze well?

Hi Michelle,

This bread does freeze well. Make sure it is completely cool, you can slice or leave whole. I wrap it well with saran wrap, then foil, then place in a zip lock bag, make sure all of the air is out of the bag.
