    Jug O'Mud's Note:

    Sally Lunn bread is a slightly sweet, brioche-like bread. It is believed to have been named for a late 18th century baker, named (what else?!) Sally Lunn, in Bath, England. Good fresh out of the oven or topped with jam, whipped cream or berries for any "anytime of the day" special treat. Try baking in Bundt pan for an attractive presentation.

      This is an incredibly light, slightly sweet bread. It looks beautiful when it comes out of the bundt pan with just a touch of butter melted on it. Like petlover, I used the machine to make the dough, then scooped it into the bundt for the last rise. I was really concerned that this hadn't finished cooking cause it was so soft, but it was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe.
