Sally Lunn bun

A Sally Lunn bun is a traditional version of a manchet, a traditional English yeast bread originating from Bath in the English West Counry.


The recipe for this bun is said to have originated in Bath with the arrival in 1680 of a Huguenot immigrant called Solange (Sollie) Luyon who started a bakery. Sally Lunn is a corruption of her name and the bun became a very popular delicacy in Georgian England as its taste and lightness allowed it to be enjoyed with either sweet or savoury accompaniments.

It remains a locally produced speciality into the 21st century with imitations throughout the English speaking world often marketed as a Bath bun.
