Sally Lunn Batter Bread
I love the creamy golden color and the soft texture of this bread, tastes great too.
It fills the house with its aroma.
1-package dry yeast
1/2cup warm water
1cup warm milk
5-1/2 to 6 cups flour
Honey Butter-1/2cup real butter mixed with 1/2 cup honey
In a bowl dissolve yeast in warm water.
Add the milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs, and 3 cups of the flour.
Beat until smooth. stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. (do not knead)
Cover and let rise in a warm place until it had doubled. (about an hour)
Stir the dough down, spoon into a greased and floured 10inch tube pan or bundt pan.
Cover and let rise again until doubled (about an hour)
Bake at 400* for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown remove the loaf from the pan and cool.
Serve with the honey butter.
