**Warning!!! This bread is highly addictive and if you think you can't keep out of it only make 1 loaf! not 2 as the recipe makes.**
4-1/2 to 5 cups flour or Brown Rice Flour Mix plus 3/4 teaspoon Xantham Gum (for gluten free version)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar or honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups warm milk (or rice milk or other dairy free milks)
Mix 3 cups flour, soda, salt, and yeast.
Add sugar or honey, water, and milk.
Mix well. Should be like pancake/waffle batter.
Slowly add 1-1/2 to 2 cups of flour until dough is fairly stiff but sticky. It's still scoopable but not pourable exactly.
Scoop into two greased 4x8 bread pans. After last nights fun I will stick with non-stick pans and not glass.
Spread out evenly andlet rise covered for 30-45 minutes.
Bake 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove bread from pans immediately and brush all sides with butter.
Don't slice right away as it is very soft on the inside. Give it 5-10 minutes. Inside of bread will be full of air pockets resembling English muffins. The top recipe picture is the gluten/dairy free version and wasn't as holey. I may experiement with my flours a little but I still found it very tasty! Serve with more butter and/or jam.
