English Muffin Bread6 cups unsifted flour
2 pkg Active Dry Yeast (I use 2 Tbsp)

Combine 3 cups flour, the undissolved yeast, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Heat milk and water until very warm (120-130 F). Add to dry ingredients and beat well. Stir in remaining 3 cups flour to make a stiff batter. Spoon into two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 loaf pans that have been greased and sprinkled with cornmeal. Sprinkle the tops with cornmeal. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from draft for 45 minutes. Bake at 400 F for 25 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and cool.
