Recipe by Patti McD

I clipped this recipe years ago from an article on Williamsburg, VA. While not the traditional Sally Lunn bread, this is an easy and delicious variation. It also adapts easily to using sugar substitutes or blends. I have made it both ways. It is lightly sweet and serves up great as a breakfast treat or light dessert or adjunct to dinner.
