Portuguese Sweet Bread Rolls – delicious sweet, flaky bread rolls. These rolls are simple to make and they turn out beautiful and delicious.
I can’t stop baking lately. There are just so many things I want to make. So I made these Portuguese sweet rolls for the first time. I have the recipe from a friend of mine and I thought I’d give it a try. Making rolls is pretty easy, and so were these rolls. They turned out so beautiful, you almost don’t want to eat them, almost.
This is also the first time I used sweetened condensed milk in bread, and I make lots of sweet type breads. It’s the sweetened condensed milk that give these rolls the sweetness. They are just wonderful, so flaky and fragrant from the lemon zest, I just love them.
