Quick No-Knead English muffin Bread

February 4, 2012

I was itching to make something different yesterday and stumbled onto a recipe I had from a long time ago in my recipe book for No-Knead English Muffin Bread from this site Looking at the recipe it seemed so simple and it was quick too. Only 2 hours from start to finish with 15 minutes of hands on time. I am very glad I made it. It was very simple and tasted good. Really fluffy even with some whole wheat flour and it makes really generous portions.

 Quick No-Knead English muffin Bread

  •  1 packet yeast (2 ¼ tsp)
  • 1 cup flour, fluffed to aerate before measuring
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ cup warm @ 110 degree tap water
  • 1 ¾ cup flour, fluffed again

Note: I used white whole wheat for the 1st cup and regular flour for the rest.


Grease (I used cooking spray) and flour a 1 ½ – 2 quart casserole dish. I used a square baking dish 9×9.

In a large bowl, combine yeast, 1 cup flour, sugar, salt and water. With a handheld mixer, beat on medium speed for 3 minutes (time yourself). Add the remaining flour slowly and mix until fully blended. You will need to remove the beaters once the dough begins to climb them. Then finish mixing with wooden spoon.

Add dough to greased dish and arrange evenly. It is thick so just try to do your best.

Cover with a light towel if in the open and let rise in a warm place for 30 -60 minutes until it doubles in size (I did the full 60 minutes until it looked like it was almost going to start overflowing). At about 30 minutes preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Once done rising bake for @ 20 – 45 minutes. Until top is golden. I think I only got 20-25 minutes in and it was looking nice and brown.

Turn onto cooling rack. Mine just slipped out easily with the cooking spray.

    Hi Missy, So glad you like the recipe, it’s a favorite of mine too. You may not be aware, when you use another site or source’s recipe, it’s considered “good manners” to link to that site and give credit, here it is No-Knead English Muffin Bread. It won’t hurt your site, in fact it will help it.

    PS That said, you have done what MOST don’t, take your own photos and rewrite the recipe in your own words. Good job on that!

    PPS You may not be aware, the comment above mine is spam, the clue is the “hair loss cure” link “Susan” left in her signature.
