Sally Lunn bread is normally made as a yeast bread, but this recipe from an old Joy cookbook is for a very quick version. I thought I'd try it and see how it works.

salt
1/2 c

eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a large loaf pan, or 3 mini-loaf pans.

Sift together dry ingredients. Cream together shortening and sugar. Beat the eggs one at a time into the creamed mixture.

Add the sifted ingredients to the batter in 3 parts, alternately with the milk. Stir batter lightly until the ingredients are just blended.
