This delicious and easy to make English muffin bread will make your whole house smell amazing while baking! My family likes to enjoy it while it is warm. Technically, you should allow the bread to cool before eating because English muffin bread texture can change if cut warm. Spreading soft butter and letting it melt into the nooks and crannies is what English muffin bread is all about! Fall is about here, so now is the time to whip up Pumpkin Honey Butter too – it is amazing on this fresh bread – amazing!
There is nothing like fresh English muffin bread! My family devours both loaves within a couple days. Generously wrap bread in plastic wrap or plastic ziplock bread. You can freeze the extra loaf for up to 2 months – or surprise a neighbor!
