4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
4 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups milk
1/2 cup water


Combine 2-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, salt and baking soda in a large mixer bowl. Heat milk and water until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Spread batter in 2 (8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch) loaf pans that have been greased and sprinkled with cornmeal.

Cover; let rise in warm, draft- free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 25 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire rack. Slice; toast to serve.
