Portuguese Sweet Bread

 

This  bread is delicious any time of day.  With your morning coffee or with your stews and soups.

The first time I ever made this bread, it was a disaster!  I was newly married and wanted to impress my husband.  I impressed him alright!  My bread wouldn't rise but I still baked it in a round pie pan.  It came out like a frisbee, flat and hard!  My husband not wanting to hurt my feelings said it was good and finished the bread in a few days.  He dunked it in his morning coffee which made it nice and soft.

I have since perfected bread making!  Cover it,  Keep it out of drafts, and let it rise!

  • 6 eggs, room temp.
  • 1-1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 pkgs. yeast, dissolved in warm water.
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. shortening
  • 2 lbs. flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup evaporated milk, combined with 1 cup water.
  • Note:  to make sure yeast is good, add 1 tsp. of sugar to yeast and water mixture.  If the yeast doubles in size, your yeast is good.
  • Make sure you leave enough room in the pan for dough to rise, otherwise it will spill over into your oven.  I kind of eye ball the amount of dough in each pan, because it will double in size.  I also place a cookie sheet under my loaf pans just in case of spillage.

Cooking Process:

 

Measure all ingredients.  Mix flour, salt, butter and shortening.  Add sugar.  Add eggs.  add yeast.  Gradually add milk combined with water.  Mix, knead and form into loaves, and let rise.

Note:  To get the nice brown color on your baked bread, brush egg whites on the dough just prior to baking.

Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour.
