This is a delightful loaf that just begs for anything and everything to be put on top of this crusty, toasting bread. I followed the ingredients, but put the whole deal in the breadmaker, since I was out pruning fruit trees, and planting potatoes. This worked out perfectly! I followed my bread/makers instructions, adding the milk-water-oil first (after heating) added dry ingredients, and yeast on top. This is the best/toast ever. Will make this alot, so nice. Made for *I Recommend* tag game April 2009.
What an awesome recipe! Definitely one I'll use again and again. I wanted to make two loaves, but didn't have enough AP flour. Used 4 cups AP and two cups of freshly ground whole wheat, but otherwise doubled the recipe exactly. The texture of this bread is wonderful and the flavor is out of this world. My crew wouldn't wait for it to cool completely, so it was still slightly warm when they cut it and enjoyed with elderberry jelly that I'd made this morning. Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe!
Wow, made it this morning and will bake another tonight. So simple and so tasty!
This is a delicious toasting bread that I have made with all bread flour and 1/2 bread flour and 1/2 wheat flour. Delicious each way! It's hard to keep a loaf around here. Sorry I forgot to review it before!
Fantastic bread. I have made several loaves and absolutely love it. To make it a bit more healthy, I use 2 cups bread flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour and add 2 teaspoons of wheat gluten and only 2 teaspoons of sugar. I do the whole thing in the bread machine. Perfect toast for the morning. No more store bought english muffins in our house.
great and easy recipe Thank you
I found this recipe on the KAF site last week and made it that morning. It is so easy and delicious. I love English muffins but I actually think that the texture of this bread is better... no gumminess at all. It is wonderful toasted with sweet butter and honey!
As good and easy as everyone says. I needed to add a bit more water than called for. VERY good taost, inexpensive recipe to make. A must try and no bread machine needed!
As good or better than the store bought English Muffins that are famous for their "nooks and Crannies" and a whole lot less expensive.
Thanks Brandess. This bread is SO simple and delicious. I added a little garlic and onion seasoning to give it a little kick and it turned out beautifully. It's great for toasted sandwiches.
