English muffin bread makes the best white toast you’ll ever make. It’s simple to make and freezes well too.
English muffin bread
Apart from the fact that this bread was so good it doesn’t need any fancy styling, there is a reason for its severe lack of styling.
The first time I made this was years ago when I was pregnant with our first.
It was a random Friday morning and I woke up feeling quite off. I decided to ditch my walk. I felt like I really needed to eat something and fast.
The thought of my regular smoothie turned my stomach. Immediately my brain went to vegemite toast (wow has it been a long time since I’ve had vegemite toast now!).
I thought it must have been a delayed attack of morning sickness, which I luckily escaped in the first trimester.
I was wrong – turned out it was gastro.
The only bread we had was this loaf of English muffin bread.
I’d made it the previous day & it was sitting, un-cut on the bench waiting for its photo shoot.
I whacked it in front of the window and snapped a few shots.
Then I sliced off a few slices and clicked the camera a couple more times.
I must add, it sliced very well.
I’ve always wanted one of those bread-slicing guides. Cutting even pieces is not my forte but this loaf made me look like a pro.
I threw one of said slices in the toaster then smeared it with a little butter and lots of vegemite and took about two photos before gobbling it up standing over the poor excuse for a photo set up.
If another good thing came from my little bug it was discovering how good this bread is for toast.
You know how English muffins are pretty tough and don’t tear when you’re spreading toppings on them like some bread does?
That’s exactly what this loaf is like.
It toasts nice and tough but it’s still really soft and fluffy in the middle with a nice crunchy crust coated in cornmeal.
My husband made me my
dinner vegemite toast that night and thought it looked so good he had the same himself later declaring it ‘the best toast bread ever.’
I have to say I agree with him.
