Bread Baking Buddies : Sweet Portuguese Bread

The Bread Baking Babe Tanna decided to bake for friends this month and chose a sweet bread that comes from Portugal.
I love very much trying recipes from all over the world waiting to visit the places. This summer I read the History of the Siege of Lisbon by Josè Saramago where he imagines a proof reader changing just one word from a text and writing a new Story. He describes Lisbon in past times and today making me desire to visit it. I liked it, did you read it ?
Back to our bread...we are devouring it every morning toasted and spread with lemon marmalade : wonderful !
Tanna diminished the sugar but I didn't as I wanted it for breakfast. Please visit Tanna for the recipe and to see all the Massa Sovada !

Your loaf looks lovely ... I think I knead to bake again ... as soon as I have an oven again.

What a great idea to have the bread toasted with marmalade! Although it's good with goat's cheese and honey too.

But now I'm going to have to make more Portuguese sweet bread just so we can try it with marmelade. (Poor us. ;-))

Also, thank you for the book recommendation.
