"A recipe for delicate English muffin bread that's baked in your microwave! You might also try adding about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of raisins to a batch. (FOR A 650-WATT OVEN)" — Larry

warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

active dry yeast
whole wheat flour
This bread was SO easy to make and it turned out great. Never knew I could make such tasty bread in the microwave.
The flavor of this loaf is pretty insipid, even when toasted. The dough was also quite sticky and needed about an extra half cup of flour to be able to be handled easily, while still remaining relatively soft. Generally, the proportion of liquid to 3 cups of flour in a bread recipe is 1 cup, not 1-1/4 cups. The taste is definitely dominated by whole wheat, and as such, it didn't taste to us remotely like English muffins. Flavor-wise, it lacks salt, but adding more might inhibit the dough's ability to rise, so do so judiciously. The grain is too close and fine to resemble English muffins. None of the requisite "nooks and crannies" associated with them. The rising technique was definitely cool, however. I'll remember it when I need to get my yeast breads to rise in a hurry. Since my microwave is pretty powerful, I used 40% power for the rise stage, and even so, only had to give it the 1 minute/10 minute wait twice before it rose to 2" above the pan. Interesting premise, but flavor is decidedly lackluster.
I never thought you could even make bread in the microwave. These were really good. Tasted just like english muffins.
Excellent bread from a m/w oven. I used 1 tsp. of the yeast that is added with the
dry ingredients. Thank you for posting this recipe.
My wife has made this recipe for years. It is always in our frige. It makes the BEST garlic bread, french toast, grilled sandwiches, croutons, or just toast and jelly/peanut butter. It's also great with ham/egg/mock Hollandaise - easy eggs benedict.
I used these directions to make Amish White Bread (from this website) in the microwave. I dried out the bread overnight and made homemade Panko breadcrumbs. Thanks for the great instructions.
It tastes like bread. Really. Great quick snack for the kids, and a good preschool project. Instant gratification.
made this with whole wheat pastry flour. Used wheat bran for the corn meal since I didn't have any. I don't know how much I would say this was like english muffins, but it was definitely good and definitely easy.
