    Mia #3's Note:

    This is a typical Portuguese Easter cake, their is more than one, receipe, it all depends on where you live, from north to south the receipe varies. This receipe is more known in the Northern part of Portugal, (which is where I come from) I hope you all enjoy it as much as we Portuguese do. P.S. I always like to add in Lemon grind and some orange gives it a great flavour.

      Have not tried this yet but have been looking for a Pao De Lo recipe for a long time. Certainly have eaten enough of them in the Algarve (yes, they have them down there too) and going to file this away for future baking. Thanks again - delighted to have an authentic recipe.
