English Muffin Bread

Can you believe how beautiful the weather is right now? I remember before winter the weathermen were predicting that this was going to be the worst winter we have had in awhile. Yet it turned out to be the best winter! Unless, you like the snow and cold weather? Then I guess it wasn’t so good. As I am writing this post the sun is shining through the window and I wish I could go for a run instead of writing! I’m going to make this quick and hopefully I can do both.


As I have mentioned (repeatedly), I am not big on breakfast foods. Unless it is some kind of bread smothered in butter, peanut butter, or cream cheese I am probably not going to eat it. Oh, and hash browns! I don’t like, eggs, bacon, sausage, or any of the things people typically eat for breakfast. When I saw this recipe for English muffin bread on pinterest I knew I had to try it. I love English muffins, and what is better than fresh English muffin bread smothered with butter every morning? Actually, I can think of one thing better. Fresh English muffin bread smothered with lemon curd. Thank goodness there is still some bread left. Now I just need to whip up some lemon curd! This bread could not have been easier to make. We ended up halving the recipe because even I cannot eat 4 loaves of bread. The ingredients below are for 4 loaves though. Our bread did not have the nooks and crannies you would expect of an English muffin. I think we should have let it rise a little longer but I got impatient. It tasted amazing though. And from the outside it looked like a “loaf” of English muffins. I will definitely be making this again. I always forget how good fresh baked bread is!


Here is what you’ll need


Mix all ingredients together except the butter


Divide the batter between the pre-greased pans and allow to rise


As I said, we should have let ours rise a little longer but someone got impatient


Brush with butter and return to the oven


Swap out that jam for some lemon curd and you have a pretty tasty breakfast!
