Portuguese Sweet Bread

This is a very heavy bread - good as toast, too!


  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg
  • 4 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon lemon extract


  1. Place all ingredients in order listed. Select light crust setting.

The crust will be very brown. This is due to the high sugar content of the bread. It does not affect the flavor, however.
