We call this bread Paul Bunyan bread. Why it is incredibly large, you would just have to see it to really understand how big it is after it is baked. This bread is so light, incredibly soft and smells so intoxicating. It is wonderful all by it’s self and even better with jam or butter. I take fresh strawberries and place in a food processor with a little powdered sugar and vanilla oh goodness, then smear this all over the bread oh my heavenly. How can BREAD be that wonderful oh but it is! Makes the best toast or french toast oh my goodness. It is great for bread pudding too. This bread always comes out light and fluffy. I warn you it is impossible to resist. I know you and your family will love it. It is really easy to make with wonderful results. Oh wait you know what it is great with…ready….. fresh peanut butter a tad of honey and apples or peanut butter, honey and bananas.
Portuguese Sweet Bread
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup whole milk
6 tablespoon butter + 2 for top
1 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs + 1 egg yolk
3/4 cup sugar
4 cup bread flour
3 teaspoons yeast
Place all ingredients in bread machine and run on dough cycle, once done leave in machine an additional 30 minutes to let rest. Roll out into a desired shape. I bake in a bread sandwich loaf pan. Roll out to fit into pan. Butter pan really well, place in pan and brush top with butter cover with a light soft cloth. Let rise until double in size. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. Let cool a few minutes and slice.
