Puerto Rican bread with ginger

July 27, 2010 - 10:23pm -- Trialer70

I am searching for a bread from Puerto Rico that is made in small round loaves, has a strong flavor/aroma of ginger (this is a yeast bread, not a gingerbread or "quick bread" type) and is mildly sweet.  A friend born and raised in Ponce, PR, remembers eating something like this as a child.  He does not remember it as being Hot Cross Buns, but as being a small boule or round loaf.  I'd like to make it for him, if I knew what type of bread this could be.
