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.
