Bread Baking Babes are Sweet!

Who said the Babes aren't sweet? 

Tanna, of My Kitchen in Half Cups and our host kitchen this month set out to prove just how sweet a Babe can be. 

After extensive research, lengthy discussions with her Portuguese neighbor (could a glass of port been involved?) and more than a few loaves of trial bread we give you:

Sweet Portuguese Bread: Massa Sovada

The recipe, and process she used to get it, are all recounted on her blog – It's a good read with beautiful photos.  

From the reports I have read from the rest of the Babes this is one delicious bread: more like a sweet cake than a hearty loaf, makes excellent French toast and is gone in 30 seconds.

The only complaint I could garner out of all the blogs is that it disappeared too fast, causing another loaf to being made to disappear equally fast.

Such troubles the Sweet Babes have.

This was unanimously recommended for Buddies – posting date the 29th.

In case you're curious – with mon mari in hospital this month, and him being Type 1 diabetic and all, I'm baking less these days….

But, to maintain my rank as Babe, I am the (self-appointed) BBBBB (Bitchin' Bread Baking Babe Bibliothécaire).

  1. I’m with Natashya. Seeing all the breads together is so cool. I can almost imagine them lined up in one big room. Just think of the intoxicating aroma!!
    The bread that I made using just a little more than the least amount of sugar is more like a dinner roll than cake. My husband says it’s PERFECT with scrambled eggs. Of course, he’s wrong. Scrambled eggs don’t go well with anything.

  2. Awwww I love your roundup!! Ahhh all those sweet breads in one post. I shall bake another one, the last one was gone way too quick!
    Love your title BBBBB *snickers*

  3. I can’t think of anyone more suited to the job, Katie! Well done. As I told Tanna, this bread could be the ruin of my gluten-free regime. I am soooo tempted …

  4. Now that’s it! Today I am going to splurge on new batteries for my camera. *hides her scroogey head in shame*
    Love the round up Katie, it is so good to see all these loaves in one place.

  5. Natashya, they are pretty, aren’t they?
    Joanne, thanks – if I can think of another B I’ll add it ;-))
    Elizabeth, I bet it would be good with poached eggs, too ;-))
    Zoomie, give this one a try!
    Astrid, rumor has it they were rather moorish….
    Christine, Why, thank you Christine…. Yeah, it could ruin good intentions….
    Baking Soda, consider it a shopping spree… Thanks!
