English muffin bread dough ready to rise overnight!
English Muffin Bread
2 cups soymilk
1/2 cup water
5 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
4.5 tsps yeast
1 T sugar
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
~ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two loaf pans with cooking spray, and dust them with cornmeal.
~ Warm the soymilk and water to approx 125 degrees F.
~ Mix together 3 cups flour along with the yeast, sugar, salt, and baking soda.
~ Stir the milk into the flour mixture.
~ Knead in 1 cup of extra flour at a time to make a stiff dough.
~ Divide the dough in half, place 1 half in each loaf pan, and coat the tops of the dough with cooking spray. Cover lightly with cling wrap, and set aside in a warm place to rise - at least for an hour, and overnight if you'd like.
~ Bake for 40 minutes - until you have a light crust on top. Serve warm or cooled!
My wonderful husband, who doesn't think I am crazy for baking bread at 11pm...We're a good yeast team. :-)
