Cooking Thursday~~Sally Lunn Bread

About this time each year I start longing for the living history museum we go to near us.  Being able to leave this fast paced world and step back to the 1800's.  One way I can keep the museum around us year round is through the food.  So this week I'm sharing with you one of the recipes they make often at the museum.

Sally Lunn Bread

1 cup milk
1 pkg. dry yeast
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt

Heat the milk to almost boiling.  Let it cool until it is lukewarm and add the yeast.  Cream the butter and sugar until well incorporated.  Then add the eggs and beat well.  Add flour and salt.  Mix well.  Cover and let rise until it is doubled in size.  Punch down and stir again.  Put into a bunt pan or spring form pan.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

This bread is SO good.  Buttery and light that melts in your mouth.
