  1. Lightly grease a microwave-safe 9x5 inch loaf pan; sprinkle pan with cornmeal.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, sugar, salt, soda and whole wheat flour; beat well. Beat in all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for about 5 minutes, or until smooth. Form into a loaf, and place into the prepared pan.
  3. Place in microwave oven uncovered, at 50 percent power, for 1 minute. Let rest for 10 minutes. Repeat 1 or 2 times until loaf has doubled in size.
  4. Microwave on high for 4 to 6 minutes, until top is no longer moist. Let stand for 5 minutes in pan. Remove and cool on a rack.

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 ...
