Sally Lunn Bread

Cathy Smith


My family loves bread, all kinds of bread. This is a bit of a sweet bread. It makes a goodbreakfast bread, for toast or to even do french toast. Now of course almost everyone has had cinnamon toast but in my family we also had sugar toast and we loved it. I still have it today and my daughter and grandchildren love it. This bread makes great sugar toast. All you do is spread it with butter and sprinkle it with sugar and toast under the broiler. It's great!!
