Thanks to Colleen and her fabulous recipe for Portuguese Sweet Bread, my home currently smells like heaven. Truly, I’m such a lover of food that I really do think heaven very well smell like a bakery. This bread takes a bit of time and care, as any great recipe does, but is well worth the effort. Four loaves headed off to friends today, and the timing is perfect; we are celebrating my church’s 60 birthday today and having a feast after service. I’m happy to be bringing a couple of these along.)

Duda, my Portuguese friend! You’ll have to make this bread. Your peeps know what they are doing. The bakeries in Mozambique are fabulous as well.

Happy Sunday friends!


P.S. If you’d like the recipe (and really, who wouldn’t?) ask Colleen! See if she’ll share it and check out her great site.

  14. I‚Äôve been watching ‚Äì and loving ‚Äì your blog for a while now (although I‚Äôve never left a comment before) but today I just knew I had to leave a little written appreciation for all the amazing and inspirational posts – especially this one about Portuguese Sweet Bread (Yeah! I‚Äôm Portuguese! That‚Äôs why all the ‚Äútalking‚Äù!). So that‚Äôs it‚Ķ Thanks for all the joy you bring me (and to many others) everyday! 🙂

  15. Ooh! Is that as good as it looks?

  16. I’ve made lots of Portuguese Sweet bread and never seen it with raisins in it. I live in the part of California where lots of Portuguese people who came here from the Azors live….maybe they make it different…we even have two Portuguese bakeries in town and I can buy sweet bread and other Portuguese goodies any day. Next time I make my sweet bread I’ll have to try putting raisins in it. The pictures are beautiful and make my mouth water.

  17. Your baked goods look fabulous, as usual! I’ll definitely be trying Colleen’s recipe. Thanks for the link. 🙂
