You might remember my homemade English Muffins from December - the ones that didn't turn out to look like any English muffin I know of (but were tasty with Christmas morning Eggs Benny nonetheless). Well, recently, my good blog friend Cherie of Cause I Believe in You posted a recipe for English Muffin Bread, and I thought this was a great idea: the taste and texture of an English Muffin, but in the highly convenient form of a loaf! Excellent. I have a friend who just had a baby, and I went to visit on the weekend. Since I have heard through various grapevines that women with new babies love to be gifted with food because they're tired and overwhelmed, I thought my friend might like some home baking instead of a casserole (which I am terrible at making). Since this recipe makes two loaves, I kept one for myself and took one to my friend.
The recipe can be found on Cherie's blog here.
I didn't get a batter out of this, but rather a dough. I didn't knead. And the result was quite marvelous: taste and texture of an English Muffin, though a little denser. Excellent toasted with jam - just like an English Muffin! Hooray!
