A Hug and Bread

This 9-11 is hitting me a little harder than normal. I feel the need to hug my loved ones. So consider yourself hugged.
I feel the need to nest too so I'm going to share a wonderful English muffin bread recipe. I got it from somewhere.  I'm sorry to whomever posted it and I didn't write down your info. I'm an ass.

But here it is
5 1/2 cups warm water
3 packages rapid rise yeast
2 Tablespoons salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
11 cups flour
Mix together in order then spoon into 4 greased pans. Let rise in pans until dough reaches the top of the pans, and bake in 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown.  Makes 4 loaves. 

If you make this bread, it comes with Sonya instruction and you are only allowed to make the bread if you do as you are told! The bread just isn't that great unless it is cut thin and toasted. If you do this, it is amazing! I won't be buying English muffins anymore. This is so cheap and its really easy to make.
Love and hugs,
Sonya Ann

I decided about a week into my eating extravaganza (aka, my trip to Italy!) that I'd be South Beaching it up the minute I got home. Now? I want English Muffin Bread. Thanks a lot!

You may have got it from me. At least, this is a recipe I make sometimes and that I posted on my old blog. I got from the the Not Just Beans (aka, Dining On A Dime) cookbook, so maybe you got it from that website instead.

I like this bread because it's so easy to make. It is great toasted, but we like it untoasted, too.

Sonya Ann said...

ChiTown-I would think that everything here would look like crap compared to the lovely food in Italy.
Glad that you are back!

Sonya Ann said...

Annie-I may have gotten it from you so thank you so much! It's a winner.
I just wasn't a big fan of it when it wasn't toasted. Den made homemade raspberry jam and it was not up to par either. Usually we use the raspberries growing in our yard but this time we bought them and I think that was where the problem was. Oh well, it will still get eaten.

Feeling the need to nest?
Uh oh.....I hope you don't feel the need to go pee on a stick too!

Now pass some bread over here. ;-)

That bread looks easy & delicious - I'll give it a try! Thanks for the recipe.

Jenny Woolf said...

Ooh, looks good. I recently (3 months) bought a bread maker (from a second hand shop - it worked, though). I didn't really think I would use it but I knewbI had at least to give it a try necause I'd been saying for years I wanted to make bread and I knew I would never do it by hand.

And, I do use it. I never buy bread any more! I'm just full of pride because the loaves look so procfessional. Never mind that the bread maker made the loaves, not me, I'm still proud.

Sheila said...

I made it before too but had a microwave version. I agree better toasted. Hugs.

D.Lynn said...

Sounds amazing! Thanks for the recipe - I loves me my bread :)

Sonya Ann said...

sluggy-What the hell is wrong with you!?! Dear god, I would jump off a building before I would have another kid!

Sonya Ann said...

Hawaii Planner-Thank you so much for coming to see me! I hope you enjoy it.

Sonya Ann said...

Jenny Woolf-I've been saying that I want one too. And a dehydrator. The problem is I don't have any storage space left. Well, I could put it in Anna's room.
So are you saving a ton of money?

Sonya Ann said...

Sheila-I honestly didn't know that you could make bread in the microwave.

Sonya Ann said...

D.Lynn-Thank you for coming to see me!

McVal said...

Thanks! I am SO writing this down and will make it this weekend!

Sonya Ann said...

McVal-It is super easy! And I am sad to say that I have been toasting a few pieces for breakfast everyday. I'm really trying to weigh 300lbs.

Frances said...

Thanks for the hug! And that bread sounds yummy!

Jane said...

Warm crusty bread oozing with butter is one of my fave comfort foods and with 9/11 comfort is always needed. And always will be.

Sonya Ann said...

Frances-;)

Jane-I can't wait to read what is going on in your world!
