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.

(she's still uploading the pics….)
Isn't that just about the sweetest thing ever!

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).
