My favorite bread!

It must be fall in the last couple days we've had chilli, potato soup, and now beef stew! My recipe for beef stew is pretty basic, but I love to make this quick bread to go with it! Actually I'll make this bread to go with pretty much anything. This sweet bread even works in place of pound cake as a dessert.

Quick Sally Lunn Bread

2 eggs separated
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter melted
1/4 cup sugar (for the top of bread)

Preheat oven to 350. Beat egg yolks with sugar. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt, alternating with milk. Add melted butter. Beat egg whites until stiff, fold into batter. Pour into greased loaf pan. Sprinkle top with sugar.

Bake 40-45 minutes.
