English Muffin Bread

An easy yeast bread to remind you of English muffins. Made in a casserole dish instead of a loaf pan!

Servings 1 loaf


  • 3 cups flour, divided
  • 1 envelope yeast (2 1/2 tsp bulk)
  • 1 1/4 cups water (115-120 degrees)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Cornmeal


1. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour and all of the yeast.

2. In a saucepan, heat (and stir) the water, sugar, and salt until it is dissolved and reaches 115-120 degrees.

3. Add the water/sugar/salt to the dry mixture in the bowl. Stir/mix for three minutes, adding remaining flour as needed.

4. Turn out onto floured surface and knead lightly. Shape into a ball. Place in greased bowl, cover, let rise in warm place one hour.

5. Punch down, let rest 10 minutes. Grease 1 quart casserole dish and sprinkle with cornmeal.

6. Reshape dough into ball, place in casserole dish, sprinkle top of dough with additional cornmeal.

7. Let rise 30-45 minutes.

8. Bake at 400 for 40-45 minutes. If top is getting too dark, you can cover the bread with aluminum foil.
