Brazilian Sweet Rolls

–Patricia R.

My dear friend, Valeria, first introduced me to this sweet bread when our family lived in South Florida. She says you can tell it’s a Brazilian recipe because of the sweetened condensed milk — a Brazilian favorite.┬áThe fact that it only requires a few ingredients makes it one of my favorites, too! We love these served warm at breakfast time. –Mellyn

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can of warm water
  • 1/2 cup egg powder**
  • 3/4 cup water**
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 4 cups of flour or until reaches bread consistency (I used about 6 cups)
  1. Add milk, water, egg powder and additional water in the blender for 2 minutes.
  2. Combine flour and yeast in a bowl, and pour blender contents on top.
  3. Mix together, adding more flour if necessary.
  4. Let rise for about an hour or until doubled. (You can skip this first rise, but the bread won’t be as soft.)
  5. Shape into rolls or bread — a braid is really pretty.
  6. Let rise again for 20-30 minutes.
  7. If desired, sprinkle some sugar on top before baking.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until top of bread is lightly browned.
**You can also substitute 4 fresh eggs for the egg powder and 3/4 cup water.
