Portugese sweet bread

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Pkgs. yeast
1 cup Milk
½ cup Warm water
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Sugar
2 ounces Butter or margarine
3 \N Beaten eggs
7 cups Flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine yeast, water & 1 teas. sugar; let stand 5 minutes. Beat eggs in large bowl. In small pan, combine milk, salt, butter and sugar; stir over low heat until milk is warm (butter may not be melted). Gradually stir in egg, then beat in 3 cups flour; add yeast and heat until smooth. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make dough; turn on to lightly floured board and knead 8 to 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover, let rise until doubled in bulk (1-½ hours). Form into 4 small loaves (I usually use cake pans for baking the bread.). Let rise until doubled or at least an hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool on rack.
