    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water with a pinch of the sugar. Set aside until foamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Transfer the yeast mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the sugar, eggs, salt, flour and milk until the dough comes together. Stir in the butter, then turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead for about 10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Cover dough with a cloth and set aside to rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
    3. 3
      Divide dough into about 15 to 20 pieces, and shape them into flat round cakes about 1cm (1/2 in) thick. Place a cloth on the table and dust it with flour. Arrange the cakes on the cloth, allowing space for rising. Allow them to sit for 1 1/2 hours.
    4. 4
      Place the cakes in a heavy ungreased frying pan, and cook over low heat. Fry the cakes on each side until golden.

      I have never had a "bread" like this before. I cut the recipe back to make 5 which actually made 6 LOL The first bite I was " I don't think I like these" well the next thing I knew one was gone LOL. DH LOVES them and so do I. The sweetness was "strange " at first. We split and toasted the leftovers for breakfast. YUM Made to say Thanks for being a great team mate on Zaar Chow Hounds during ZWT 5

      I used to live in an area with a lot of Portuguese immigrants and used to buy bolos levedos all the time. I always considered them the Portuguese version of the English muffin, like Pneuma mentioned, and have always eaten them just as I would an English muffin. Since I haven't seen these around where I live now, I was excited for this recipe! Great breakfast food! I had to sub about 1/4 of the plain flour with whole wheat flour since I ran out of plain flour. They still tasted great anyway. Made for the Epicurean Queens, ZWT5: Zingo.
