Mark Sinclair's Portuguese Sweet Bread

Hi everyone,

I'm currently in the mood to bake some sweet enriched doughs and what I have on my list to bake is PR's Middle Class Brioche and after reading about Mark Sinclair's Portuguese Sweet Bread, I knew I couldn't pass that one up either.  I've tried looking for his forumla with the biga version but the link he posted doesn't work.  Does anyone have the forumla they can share?

Hi, i clicked on the link and it worked.  Perhaps it is a browser issue which I occasionally have seen.  try using Firefox if you are using Explorer.  If you already use Firefox, then try Explorer.  Last week i tried to post on Explorer and it wouldn't work, even though I never had that problem prior.  When I used firefox (free), my problem dissappeared.  Thus my suggestion...  Could be a temporary quirk...

Now I will try the recipe you are seeking!

The PDF link with the Biga forumla is the one that doesn't seem to be working.

I couldn't get the link to work, either, but I found the recipe in this series of messages:

Link to same thread. The recipe listed in the messages is not the biga version. Mark apparently no longer wants the recipe published. My guess.

Could this the recipe you are looking for?
