Sally Lunn Bread

Bill:  I’ve been making different bread over the last couple of weeks.  I use the bread machine to mix the dough and let it start to rise.  I then transfer the bread to a normal pan and let it rise a little longer before baking in the oven for about 25-30 minutes at 350.  Today I made Sally Lunn bread.  It turned out really well and tasted great.  My bread cookbook describes this as a very rich, European tasting bread.  Tradition says that a young Englishwoman, Sally Lunn, sold this bread on the streets of Bath in the early 1700s.

  1. That sounds like good bread. It would probably taste really good for grilled cheese or french toast.

  2. Good idea. I had some for lunch with tuna salad that I made with carrots, celery & onions mixed in. It tasted great toasted in the oven with some cheese on top.
