Grandma Galantine's
Portuguese Sweet Bread

Recipe by Grandma Galantine

Courtesy of Lodi News-Sentinel

Renee Galantine said her grandmother always enjoyed making cookies and pies. Her husband's grandmother enjoyed making fruit cakes but she and her husband always enjoyed her recipe for sweet bread. Galantine said she has been on a mission to archive all recipes from her grandmother and great-grandmother and well as her husband's family to preserve them for their families to come.

2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 pound butter
(these should be pretty warm)
8 egg yolks - well beaten (add to milk mixture)
4 to 5 cakes yeast ( 2 teaspoons = 1 cake yeast)
6 to 7 cups flour
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup orange juice
1 lemon, grated
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons lemon extract

1. Mix together, knead and let rise until doubled in size.

2. Punch down then divide and twist into pie pans (makes 2 loaves).

3. Let rise again.

4. When doubled, bake in slow oven at about 350 or 325 degrees until done, between 45 minutes to an hour.

5. Once removed from oven brush with melted butter.
