      Title: Portuguese sweet bread (pao doce [part 1])
 Categories: Breads
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
      2 pk Active dry yeast
  1 1/4 c  Warm water (110 - 115
           -degrees), divided
    3/4 c  Sugar, divided
    1/3 c  Low fat dry milk
  5 1/2    To 6 cups bread flour,
           -divided
      1 ts Salt
      3    Eggs, slightly beaten
    1/2 c  (1 stick) butter, room
           -temperature
      1    Egg for glaze
           -coarsely granulated sugar
    1/4 c  Dried currants (optional)
 
  Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of the water in large bowl of mixer.
  Sprinkle 1 tsp of the sugar on top and let stand until bubbly, about
  5 minutes. Stir in remaining water, sugar, dry milk and 2 1/2 cups of
  the flour. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to
  slow, and add salt, eggs and butter. Blend well. Add remainder of
  flour a little at a time. When dough begins to get stiff for beaters,
  change to dough hook. Enough flour is added when mixture forms a soft
  ball which gathers around dough hook and follows hook around bowl. If
  mixer doesn't have a dough hook, mix by hand with a spoon. Add flour
  in a circle around bowl, rather than in the middle. Knead dough on
  slow speed 5 minutes or 8 - 10 minutes by hand. Put dough in greased
  bowl, turning to grease top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in
  warm place until double, 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Punch down dough, divide
  into halves. CARACOIS (SMALL LOAF): Use half of dough. Roll into rope
  about 25 x 1 1/2 inches. Twist rope and coil into greased round layer
  pan. 9 x 1 1/2 inches, to form a snail shape. TRANCA A TRICANA (BRAID
  LOAF): Use half of dough.  Work 1/4 cup dried currants into dough.
  Cover with towel and let rest 30 minutes. Divide dough into 3 equal
  parts, roll each into a 14 inch rope.  Lay ropes side by side on
  greased baking sheet. Starting in middle and working out to each end,
  weave into thick braid. Pinch ends together and turn under slightly.
  TO BAKE: Cover and let rise until double, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Heat
  oven to 350 degrees. Brush top with beaten egg, sprinkle with coarse
  sugar. Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Makes 2 loaves
