English Muffin Bread

For years I have said I was going to make this bread. I had a friend rave about it a long long time ago and so many times I've meant to make it and then just haven't. Well I finally did and it was everything and more!  First of all, it's EASY!!!! Secondly, toast it a little and spread your favorite preserves, jelly, jam, fruit butter on it and you are set! 

5 1/2 cups flour
2 3/4 cups warm water
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
1 tbsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp sugar

In a large bowl combine the warm water, yeast, salt and sugar. Stir until it has dissolved.  Add two cups of flour and stir well.  Mix in the rest of the flour until it is combined but it will still appear lumpy. Transfer into a greased glass bowl. Cover and let rise until it doubles in size (45 minutes to 1 hour). Heat oven to 350. Carefully divide into two halves. Gently place into two greased loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately remove from pan then place on a wire rack on it's side to cool.
