    Anna P.'s Note:

    This bread is dense and has a great colour, good with stews, meat dishes or with tea or coffee. I got this recipe from a portuguese cookbook. and love making it. Enjoy.

      Mmmm, this bread is very good. Its not overpoweringly sweet, but is great for any time of the day. I like making it and cutting on loaf up and let it get hard overnight. In the AM it makes a wonderful french toast :)

      This was the first bread I made with my new Kitchenaid and it couldn't have been a better one to break it in. Thanks!

      I made these last night, they are very good. Only thing I found and maybe it was user error when I took the loaves from the board and put onto baking sheet they deflated and became flat. I will make this again, I liked it just may have them sit on the cookie sheets to do the 2nd rise and see what happens. Great recipe. Thanks Karen
