Portuguese Sweet Bread is just like the one from the bakeries. Serve with as is with butter or grilled. It's amazing!
Having never made the bread before, I set out to do some research. After comparing recipes, watching videos, and through the process of elimination, I selected the recipes to try. It didn’t take long to obtain bread with the color, sweetness, and buttery note that make Portuguese sweet bread a standout. In the end, I used Leah's Kitchen recipe from food.com as a guide but made a number of adjustments to the method and to the flour quantity. One key change: the original requires all hand kneading whereas I use a stand mixer to do all of the mixing and kneading. I’m all about making yeast dough easy!
This bread is great for breakfast. All it needs is a pat of butter. It is also fantastic buttered and browned up in a skillet where it becomes deliciously fragrant and caramelized. Looking to make something else with it? Try French toast. So good!
