English Muffin Bread

Donna is an inspiration. First the chicken enchilada soup, now the english muffin bread. She made a yeasted version just before Christmas that looked absolutely delicious. Since I don’t do yeast, I adapted her recipe to sourdough.

The bread is wonderfully fluffy with a snow white crumb from the milk.

For one loaf you need:

  • 160g lievito madre (at peak) (or 200g batter like sourdough)
  • 240g warm milk (only 200g if you use a batter like sourdough)
  • 360g all purpose flour
  • 7g salt
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 Tsp sugar

Mix everything and knead the dough until the windowpane test is successful. It’s a very stiff dough, so be patient.

Give the dough about 20 minutes of rest, it makes shaping easier. Divide the dough into two equal portions, then shape them each into a ball. Place the balls in a prepared loaf pan and let the bread rise until it’s doubled in size.

Pre-heat your oven including a baking steel or pizza stone to 200°C / 400F.

Bake the bread with steam for about half an hour. Core temp should be 87-88°C / 190F.

Let the bread cool in the pan for a few minutes before turning it out placing it on a cooling rack.

Only slice once it’s completely cold, and enjoy a slice or two with jam or a chocolate spread. It’s good as is, but also makes fantastic toast.

  1. Your version of the bread looks delicious!! Can you tell me how to change the measurements to cups etc? I would love to try your sour dough recipe also-I am NOT use to this kind. Need help.

  2. Hey Donna, it’s half your original recipe, so you can use the salt, sugar and oil accordingly.
    1 cup batter like sourdough, a bit less than a cup of milk, 3 cups flour
