English Muffin Bread Recipe {for the Bread Machine}

Share this idea!

This English Muffin Bread Recipe for the bread machine has turned into a family favorite bread machine recipe. I previously shared this recipe on the blog when I talked about 5 reasons you need a bread machine. But, this bread recipe has turned into such a favorite, that I didn’t want you to miss it, so I’m promoting it to a blog post all its own. 

Filled with nooks and crannies that English Muffins are known for, this bread machine recipe is no exception! It doesn’t taste exactly like English Muffins, but it does taste exactly what you’d expect English Muffin Bread to taste like!

You know how English Muffins have that dusting of cornmeal on the outside? Well, this bread machine recipe even allows for that cornmeal coating. Although it takes a little more of your time if you take the time to roll the dough in cornmeal, I think it’s definitely worth it!

The English Muffin Bread Recipe is one of 5 reasons you need a bread machine!

Rolling the dough in cornmeal is, however, completely optional. If you’d like your English Muffin Bread to have a dusting of cornmeal, then you’ll want to follow this step. Otherwise, feel free to skip right over this extra step. I found this original recipe on King Arthur Flour’s website and originally shared it on The Birch Cottage blog here.

ENGLISH MUFFIN BREAD RECIPE FOR THE BREAD MACHINE

English Muffin Bread Recipe for the Bread Machine

This bread is filled with those infamous English Muffin nooks and crannies and rolled in cornmeal.

  • 1 tspn vinegar
  • ¼ to ⅓ cup water
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk
  • 2 tbsp butter or vegetable oil
  • 1½ tspn salt
  • 1½ tspn sugar
  • ½ tspn baking powder
  • 3½ cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2¼ tspn instant yeast
  • Cornmeal (optional)
  1. Place all of the ingredients into the bucket of 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.
  2. Program your machine for basic white bread, light crust. Midway through the second kneading cycle, check the dough; it should be soft, smooth and slightly sticky. Adjust the dough’s consistency with additional flour or water, if necessary.
  3. For a true English muffin effect, remove the dough after either the final kneading or before the final rise and roll it in cornmeal.
  4. Place the dough back in the machine to rise and bake.
  5. Remove the finished bread from the machine, and cool it on a rack.

This recipe makes one 1-1/2 pound loaf of bread.
