2 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup water
5-6 cups flour (I use exactly 6)
2 packages yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda (I use 1/2 cuz it makes the bread airier)
Cornmeal

Warm milk and water. (very warm about 120 degrees)

Place 4 cups of flour, yeast, sugar, salt and baking soda in bowl and mix. Add warm liquid to mixture. Add remaining flour mixing until thoroughly combines. Dough will be VERY sticky.

Spread dough in loaf pans that have been greased and sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.

bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

This bread really freezes well if you make enough to last that long.

Glad everyone liked the bread Merme.

Triss, I just thought it was funny actually because I sat here trying to figure out where I could get slat and what it was..... [Big Grin]

lol @ loz. I love it that sounds so much like me. This does look good I may have to try it myself. And I'm not much for making yeast breads.

Thankyou for posting it Triss.

Could you imgine going to the store and asking for the slat. "please Mr Grocer, I have to have it for that recipe"

I tried to edit the post but could not. I guess too much time has past. Sorry.

Ya know Becky, the only thing that I think is English Muffiny about the bread is the texture. made two loaves tonight and one is half gone already. I really need to start making 4 at a time.

Thanks again.

I wanted to bring this recipe up to the forefront because it is so easy and delicious to make with the kids. [clappy]

It is also extremely great to make for gifts, as Merme has done! [thumb]

Even though I am quite a good cook, yeast breads have always given me a hard time, but this recipe was an exception for me. Each loaf I made came out great.

Thanks , Triss, for sharing such a great recipe! [kissies] [critic]
