Web's Best Portuguese Sweet Bread Recipe

This Portuguese sweet bread recipe is made in the bread machine.

Trivia: Traditionally, Portuguese sweet bread was served at Easter and Christmas. Now it is available year round.

Tip: Serious bread bakers will want a top notch bread machine. You can't go wrong with the Panasonic SD-YD250 Automatic Bread Maker. In my view, its the Cadillac of bread machines.
