My neighbor makes this all the time and I love it. A neat way to have bread without heating up the oven (too much). Cook time includes rise time.

Surprinsingly good. Moist and soft. I almost put it in the oven, but glad I followed the recipe.

This is so easy and so good; why have I not done this before??? Who knew that bread could be so easy and quick? My roommate and I recommend toasting slices before eating. The english muffin flavor didn't come through really really strongly but it's certainly a nice, fluffy white bread.

This is so good. I did not have 2 microwave baking dishes so I used a silicone bunt pan. My microwave is very powerful, so I only had to cook the whole thing for about 7 min. The flavor is great. I am going to slice and freeze it so I can have it for a quick breakfast. Thanks for sharing this great recipe. :)
