This bread smells wonderful, taste sweet but not too sweet and is soft inside with a nice crust.
This was made in my bread machine and you could do it the old fashioned way as well. I just chose to use my machine because there were many other things going on, certainly you can relate.
Portuguese Sweet Bread
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 tsp salt
Mix these ingredients well in a medium bowl and set aside.
In your bread machine add the liquid ingredients first. (that is how my machine recommends it be done)
1/3 cup warm evaporated milk
1/3 cup pineapple juice (room temp)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp lemon extract
2 TBSP butter melted
1 egg beaten
Mix the wet ingredients together and pour into the machine. Once the wet ingredients are in, add the dry and make a well, now add:
3 tsp yeast
Set your machine to either dough and then bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes OR set the machine to "sweet" bread and "light" crust.
