Recipe search - Sally Lunn bread.
I've been reading this site for years and finally joined. Thanks to all for your wonderful baking advice and recipes!
I'm looking for a recipe for Sally Lunn bread. My Mom visited the Washington DC area 2o years ago and brought back a recipe for Sally Lunn bread from a restaurant in DC or in one of the Northern Virginia suburbs. I think it was a signature recipe since the establishment printed a brochure with the recipe inside. I lost the recipe during a move years ago but Mom still asks me to try to recreate the bread. I've tried several recipes but none are quite right. From what I remember the bread had a cakey texture; it included scalded milk and melted shortening; and had quite a bit of sugar. It was also irresistible warm from the oven with salted butter. Does any of this ring a bell?
Thanks in advance!
