I don’t know who Sally Lunn is but she makes a delicious bread.

I remember my mom making this bread whenever we’d have soup in the winter and it was a treat. It’s soft, crunchy, and is delicious with a little butter and jam. It also is a great substitute for French bread when making French toast if it’s allowed to dry out a bit so it’s not mushy. Any way it’s served, it’s guaranteed to be delicious!


4 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 cup lukewarm milk
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup shortening
5 1/2 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water and sugar. Stir in milk, salt, eggs, shortening, and flour. Beat until smooth–the dough will be very soft and sticky. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double, about an hour. Stir down batter, then spread into a greased pan. Let rise to within one inch of the top of the pan, about 45 minutes. Heat oven to 350F and bake 45 minutes until golden brown and crusty. Serve warm with butter and jelly or slice and let dry before using as French toast.

 Either way, Enjoy!
