English Muffin Bread

5 C. flour, unsifted
1 1/2 tea. active dry yeast
1 1/2 tea. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. canola oil
2 C. very warm water
Butter and corn meal for pans

In a lrg. bowl mix dry ingredients and corn oil. Pour in 2 C. water and mix thoroughly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a towel. Let stand at room temperature overnight or at least 6 hr.. The dough will more than double and then may fall again somewhat, which is normal.

Generously butter 2 (7 1/2 x 3 1/2-in.) bread pans and sprinkle with corn meal. Divide dough, without kneading, into 2 portions and place in pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover and let rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hr. or until double in bulk.

Bake for 1 hr., then cool on rack in pans.
