This is a recipe I found years ago in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine. My children were raised on it, I made it that often. I haven't made it for quite a while now and just came across the recipe again. Think I will make it tonight! It is really good.

I made this recipe yesterday, but copied from a book (can't recall which). The only difference is that I used bread flour. Although it didn't rise much (needs more time?), it tasted DELICIOUS. I am probably going to make it again with all-purpose flour and see what happens.

Good, not particularly flavorful, but has a nice crust.

This is a fine English muffin bread. I tagged this for the bargain basement game - it's been unreviewed for more than 4 years. It goes together easily, with no kneading required, and has a nice English muffin texture.
