Grandma's Portuguese Sweet Bread Recipe Made from Scratch

I know a LOT of people are diving into bread making lately. This is my mom’s recipe. Traditionally she made it for Easter, but it’s good any time of year!


sounds wonderful - I will have to try it

I wish I would have had a Portuguese grandma! My grannie’s cooking was pretty good, but she wasn’t Portuguese. Sigh! Carmel popcorn balls can’t compete with Portuguese sweet bread.

When the bread is made traditionally for Easter and has the eggs tucked into it, how does that work? Raw eggs? They then have to be pulled out and peeled, then to be eaten? Boiled and peeled eggs put into the bread?
