Many years ago, a friend of mine gave me this recipe for Sally Lunn bread, and I have always made it perfectly in my bread machine. Since being diagnosed, no Sally Lunn for us, which is so very, very sad because my hubby absolutely loves this. My old bread machine, so dependable and true had to be retired due to gluten contamination and I was bummed. There is just nothing like a crockpot of homemade veggie soup with this bread on this side when it’s cold outside – just…nothing.
Recently, we purchased a new bread maker by Cuisinart and it’s just the bee’s knees! There is a setting for gluten free bread! Wow! Why does it need it’s own setting, you may ask – because gluten free bread dough has only 1 rise, not 2 so finding this was just a happy accident – a BIG GIANT happy accident!
My goal was to make Sally Lunn gluten free – and boy am I glad I did! Below is the recipe and info on how I made this beautiful loaf – I mean – look at the texture:
- ¾ c milk
- ½ c butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- ⅓ c sugar
- 3 1/ 2 c gf flour
- 2 tsp yeast
- Add ingredients to your bread maker IN THEORY OR DER ABOVE!
- Also - when doing the yeast, make a small hole or reservoir in the middle of the flour and put inside of it.
- If your machine does not have a gluten free setting, use the one for sweet bread
