We were challenged to bake bread this month and I immediately knew that I wanted to try my hand at the popular English Muffin Bread recipe that has been popping up on all sorts of blog recently. Ron and I love english muffins and they have been on my cooking bucket list for a long time (soon I will try to make them!). The nooks and crannies are what gets me with an english muffin. I love mine fresh from the toaster with a bit of peanut butter. I love how the warm muffin melts the peanut butter….I am drooling just thinking about it. I decided to use a recipe for English Muffin Bread from Playing with Flour (original recipe is from Cook’s Country) because the recipe was simple and received great reviews!
This bread could not be easier to make! The thing that takes the longest is waiting for it to rise, and beyond that the oven does all the work! I was impatient waiting for the bread to cool, and was so happy to see tons of nooks and crannies when I sliced the bread to try a piece. I spread a little of my favorite wild blueberry jam from Bonne Maman on a fresh slice of bread and it was fantastic! I love fresh bread and am so happy for challenges like this to make me try something new and delicious.
Tomorrow Kellen is with my mom for the day and he has his first swimming lesson! I am so excited for him, and can’t wait to hear all of his stories! He loved swimming so much the last few times we went I couldn’t help, but sign him up for class to give him more time in the pool.
