Portuguese Sweet Bread is a bread made with milk, sugar and/or honey, eggs, yeast, flour and sometimes lemon peel to produce a subtly sweet lightly textured loaf or rolls. A slightly different recipe is made during Easter that is known as folar and often contains a hard-boiled egg. Portuguese sweet bread is traditionally made around Christmas, and the Easter version is made around Easter, but it is also available year-round.
