English Muffin Bread

Perfect texture. Perfect taste. Perfect toast.

I made two loaves of this, sliced them, then kept them in the freezer.  Made for great quick breakfasts!

2 3/4 cups warm water
3 3/4 tsp. yeast
1 Tbsp. salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
6 1/2 cups bread flour (or all-purpose)

Mix all the ingredients together, then let rise until almost doubled, about an hour and a half.  Spoon batter into 2 well greased loaf pans.  Let rise again in the pans until dough reaches the top of the pans.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown.  10 minutes before they are done, brush the tops with melted butter.  Allow to cool completely before cutting.
