No-Knead, quick rise recipe for English Muffin Bread that bakes up with all the nooks & crannies to hold those delicious pockets of butter. I think English Muffin Bread is best when toasted and topped with butter, honey or jam.
Recipe for English Muffin Bread
While looking for a recipe, the first one I came across made way too much. It looked great and all, but it required something like 11 cups of flour, and I wasn’t sure I had 11 cups of all-purpose flour without needing to also use my wholewheat flour……..and I didn’t want to mix them. And it made 4 or more loaves of bread. This chubby girl doesn’t need 4 loaves of homemade bread around the house and I’m not certain I would have had the strength to give them away. I also only had one Bread Pan.
I found a recipe at About.com that seemed to have the amount I needed.

Not very easily, but it can be done. I found a paleo/grain-free recipe for English muffins here.
How to Make English Muffin Bread
For a full printable recipe, scroll down a bit. You’ll find all the measurements needed for making English Muffin Bread.
Gather your ingredients:
- active dry yeast
- warm milk
- warm water
- baking soda
- all-purpose flour
When mixing all your ingredients, you want the dough to be shaggy… sticky. There is no kneading.
Greasing your bread pan and then coating it with cornmeal will give the bread that authentic English muffin outer grit. It also helps the loaf from sticking to the pan.
After you’ve scooped your dough into the pan, let it rise for about 45 min before baking for 25 minutes or so at 400 degrees F.
The loaf will sound a little hollow when you tap on the top.
- 1 package active dry yeast
- 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup warm milk
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- Mix all ingredients, except cornmeal, in the order they are given to form a very sticky dough.
- Grease your loaf pan (8.5x4.5) Sprinkle with cornmeal to prevent the loaf from sticking to the pan.
- Spoon dough into prepared pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 45 min.
- Preheat oven 400 degrees F.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when you tap on the bread top.
- Turn out the loaf onto a baking rack and allow to cool.

This recipe looks simple enough, but of course, I didn’t read that you should add the ingredients in order as they are written. My bread turned out denser than the recipe implied, but it’s still very very good! I’ll make it again…..and again…..and again. It didn’t seem to rise as much as I thought it would, but again…….I think it’s because I didn’t follow the directions perfectly.
What I really like is how well it toasted up the next morning. Oh My Goodness! With a little honey drizzled on top, it was pretty much perfection.
If you’re out of quick-rise yeast, but you’re now in the mood to bake, try my Apple Cream Cheese quick bread. Mouthwatering!
