One of our members here at Zaar was looking for this receipe. As I am Portugues I decided to look it up, for this is a traditional cake from Serra Da Estrela (Loriga the village) Portugal. This receipe is more than 100yrs old. It usually baked in a wooden firestove, in red pottery baking dish. It does not have a time limite, as it varies from oven to oven. I impravise and use my electric oven. But as I also have a wooden firestove I'm going to give it a try there, they say you a much better taste that way. Hope you all enjoy.

This was a really tasty bread--cinnamon-y and light! I baked it at 375 degrees F. for an hour and 15 minutes, which turned out to be a little long--I'd go with closer to an hour next time.
