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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Very good. I wanted to make something close to sweet hawaiian bread and this was the closest I could find. I made it to go with spinach dip and it was great together. I had to add a lot more flour but with any bread machine recipe you just add it until the texture looks right... Read More
