Sally Lunn Batter Bread Recipe

The tantalizing aroma of this golden loaf baking always draws people into my mother's kitchen. With its circular shape, it's a pretty bread, too. I've never seen it last more than 2 hours once it's our of the oven! — Jeanne Voss Anaheim Hills, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12-16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)

  • 1/2 cup honey

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

  • 3. Stir the dough down. Spoon into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 4. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
  • 5. Combine the honey butter ingredients until smooth. Serve with bread. Yield: 12-16 servings.
