Quick Sally Lunn Bread

Recipe by Debbie R.

A nice way to get around the usual requirement of yeast for this bread. This was taken a long time ago from a community or restaurant cookbook. My coworkers liked this bread alot.

This is tasty! The adults in the house liked it, but the toddlers/kids LOVED it. Perhaps because we called it doughnut bread?? My loaf fell in the center which led me to wonder if there is too much baking powder in the recipe but upon reading the other reviews it looks like I'm the only one with that problem so it was probably user error! This was definitely easy to throw together, and I can see how it would be versatile as well. As we were having it for an afternoon snack I added a healthy shake of cinnamon to the batter and to the sugar topping. Delicious! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
