This is an easy yeast bread--no kneading required! The texture is like English muffins, great for toasting.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 2 cups milk
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons cornmeal
In a small saucepan, heat the milk and water until very warm.
Combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and soda in a large bowl. Add the warm milk and water, and beat well. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Spoon into two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans that have been greased and dusted with the cornmeal. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 25 minutes. Remove from pans immediately, and let cool.
