Kneadlessly Simple's English Muffin Loaves

As always with our Knead the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of Kneadlessly Simple to give away this week. Enter the contest here.

I like the idea of English muffin bread, even if nothing quite ever manages to fully mimic an actual English muffin. The flavor of this one comes close, and toasting brings it even closer, but it works just as well for more typical bread applications.

This recipe suggests using a large bowl for rising at room temperature; use the largest bowl you can find! When the dough threatened to overrun my large mixing bowl and gave me visions of the Woody Allen movie Sleeper, I dug out my super-ginormous mixing bowl to contain it all.

No giant mixing bowls at your house? Contain it in a big stockpot. You can transfer to a smaller bowl for mixing after that long rise.
