5 cups all-purpose flour
4 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
1 T. sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups warm milk
1/2 cup warm water
1. In a large bowl, mix half of the flour with the yeast, sugar, salt, milk, and water. Make sure the water and the milk are warm so they help to activate the yeast. Mix together for a few minutes to give the yeast a chance to activate.
2. Add in the rest of the flour and mix until just combined. I simply mixed my dough together by hand (it's sticky!) but you can use a stand mixer if you have one. Make sure you do not overmix.
3. Grease 2 loaf pans and sprinkle cornmeal in the bottom of each pan. Divide the batter into the pans, sprinkle more cornmeal on the top, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
4. Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes.
