Sally Lunn Bread, My Kitchen Smell's Heavenly!

It really does, right now. at this very moment. 9:20pm at night. my kitchen smells like bread heaven! Oh yes it does.

I don't have a picture yet because the bread maker has 10 mins left to go but I'm going to go ahead and post the recipe now, the picture will come later. Kiddo helped me put this bread in the bread maker, he loves to stand and watch the bread maker knead. Its like watching TV or something to him. But now he's tucked away in bed. My husband and I have been circling the bread maker like vultures and we are ready to dive in when it beeps.

Sally Lunn Bread - I got this recipe from my friend Lynn's Blog.

What you need:

2 eggs plus enough water to equal 1 1/3 cups
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbs sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter softened
4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast

What you do:

Dump all of the ingredients in your bread machine in the order the bread machine asks for. *I'm gonna be honest here, I just dump it all in as listed. Its never made a difference for me.

Set your machine to a White Bread Setting. This recipe makes a 2lb loaf but I don't have that setting on machine, I just set it to 1 1/2lb and it does fine.

Hit start and watch the magic unfold.
This is a seriously wonderful bread everyone. Even Kiddo agrees and like I've said before, he isn't much of a bread man.

Oh, I just heard the timer go off! Time to go slice the bread and slather a piece with butter. Yummy!



  1. I think I need to make some more this week and turn it into the French Toast Waffles.

    Glad that you think this bread is yummy too!

  2. I think it would be perfect for french toast.
