Historical Cooking: Sallie Lunn

Adding cooking activities is a great way to expand history lessons. Here is a traditional recipe for Sallie Lunn, a sweet bread named for the Englishwoman who first made it.


1 cup milk
2 Tbsps shortening
1/2 oz active dry yeast
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 Tbsp sugar


Heat the milk and shortening to scalding point and then allow to cool. Pour the milk into a bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth. Cover the bowl and leave in a warm place to rise for about 1-11/2 hrs. Knock down the dough and put in a greased pan and allow to rise for a further hour. Bake in a moderately hot over (375 F) for about 45 min.
