My family just loves this bread! One time I used regular flour instead of the bread flour and that was a mistake. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This may be a sweet bread made by someone who is Portuguese but it is not the yellow egg bread which is what real Portuguese Sweet Bread is and has always been about; whether bought at the festivals or what my Grandma used to make.
This was a really good and simple recipe to use in the bread machine. I think it would benefit from a little more flavouring though, more lemon juice or extract. When this bread is typically made (by hand) by the Portuguese they start out by heating up the milk with some lemon rind in a pot on the stove, giving it that added flavour. Rose nicely though, almost worried it would rise right out of the machine! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
Very light and tasty even though my bread rose so much that it stuck to the lid of my bread maker! I have never seen bread rise that much! Not as sweet as my grandmothers sweet bread, but will add more sugar the next time I bake it again.
An excellent recipe, and produced a perfect sized and tasting loaf. This complimented my home-made stew perfectly.
This was terrific. Nice flavor, although I omitted the lemon and added raisins. My family loves it. Quick easy and delicious
Great! I really liked this bread reminded me a lot of one a freind used to bake and give to me. A definite keeper
This was a nice bread with a nice flavor, but, it is not the Portuguese Sweet Bread I was raised with. Good recipe though.
