Help with kneading, rising slack dough portuguese sweetbread

January 9, 2011 - 8:21am -- seanmachado

Hi everyone.


I am having trouble with trying to make Massa (Portuguese sweetbread) from a generations old secret family recipe.


My mother made the bread for generations until she passed away last year, her recipe box was thrown out, but myself and several nephews got together and came up with the recipe that she used.


I cut down her recipe (which was for 7 loaves at a time, and ingredients were measured in POUNDS).

I believe I have the recipe correct, and my last loaf (probably batch # 20) came out reasonably well.
