Very good recipe! I used all milk, no water. Delicious! I made a second batch with all soy milk and it was equally as good. Same recipe found on the Fleischmann's Yeast packets. I cut the flour to 4 cups for a batter - not a dough. This resulted in a more traditional "holey" crumb. Read More

I don't know if I messed up this recipe or not but it seemed awfully doughy. Probably won't make it again. Read More

These loaves really are "just like English muffins." In my opinion, toasting definitely is required, the same as you would with regular English muffins. The flavor is enhanced by light toasting. Read More

i had no cormeal on hand so i greased and floured the pans bread didn't stick but the cormeal adds to the overall texture. i also used my electric stand mixer with the dough hook and over handled the dough a bit to much thus not getting the great little nooks and crannies that make it so good. this reciped is a good recipe i just goofed it by getting in a hurry.

I love english muffin toasting bread. As a previous review mentioned, it can get pretty expensive. You definitely need to toast it to get the full flavor. I've made this many times. Make sure that it is more of a batter and not a dough. My only complaint is that it always collapsed. instead of the usual bread shape, it ended looking like a brick. other than that. It tastes great. Read More

For you bread machine lovers, I halved the recipe, put the ingredients in my bread maker according to the direction, (liquid first, then flour, etc., with yeast last), turned the bread maker on "dough" setting and let it mix for 10 minutes. Took the dough out, put it in a bread pan, let it rise, then popped it in the oven. Turned out great and with a lot less work mixing the ingredients together. Read More

Outstanding recipe. I found adding an extra 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tbls of sugar boosted the flavor immensely. I agree that decreasing the flour to make the dough more batter like allows those lovely bubbles to develop. Love this bread. Read More
