This English Muffin Bread taste great, even better toasted, and easy to make. It's a great alternative if you like English muffins but don't have the skill or time to do the kneading, rolling and cutting.
Place all ingredients into your bread machine. Use the smaller amount of water in the summer, or during humid conditions; use the larger amount of water in winter, or if you're in a dry climate.
Set your machine for basic white bread, light crust, 1.5 lb loaf. Check the dough halfway through the second kneading cycle; it should be soft, smooth and slightly sticky. Adjust the dough's consistency with additional flour or water, if needed.
*Optional: If you wish to add cornmeal to give that true english muffin effect, remove the dough after either the final kneading or before the final rise and roll it in cornmeal. Place the dough back in the machine to rise and bake.
When the bread is finished, remove it from the machine/basket, and allow to cool.
