Total Time

Slices of this firm bread have the great English muffin texture your family is sure to love. A sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese give a pretty golden-brown color to the top of the loaves. —Anne Smithson of Cary, North Carolina


  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups warm fat-free milk (120° to 130°)
  • 1/2 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese


  1. Coat two 8x4-in. loaf pans with cooking spray; sprinkle with cornmeal and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt and baking soda. Add milk and water; beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour (dough will be sticky). Transfer to prepared pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
