This is an easy yeast bread–no kneading required! The texture is like English muffins, great for toasting.
In a small saucepan, heat the milk and water until very warm.
Combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and soda in a large bowl. Add the warm milk and water, and beat well. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Spoon into two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans that have been greased and dusted with the cornmeal. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 25 minutes. Remove from pans immediately, and let cool.

The quality of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as white bread.
To made this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
