This Sally Lunn Bread is a recipe that was handed down from my great-grandmother. It is truly a family favorite that has been passed down through generations. My mom loves this bread and had it all the time growing up. A special “thank you” to my aunt Karen for finding this recipe and sharing it with us! I love this bread because you don’t have to knead it and make a huge flour-y mess all over your counter. It is sweet, easy, and delicious (it tastes best with butter and jam)!

- Mix the hot milk, butter, sugar and salt in a large bowl and let cool to lukewarm. Stir the yeast into the warm water and let it stand for 5 minutes to dissolve. Add the dissolved yeast and the eggs to the first mixture and beat vigorously.
- Gradually add the flour. Cover and let rise in a warm place until about double in bulk. Spoon the mixture into a buttered loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 50 minutes.
