Portuguese sweet bread (Portuguese: pão doce "sweet bread" or massa sovada "kneaded dough"), also known as Hawaiian bread, is a bread made with milk, sugar and/or honey, eggs, yeast, flour and sometimes lemon peel to produce a subtly sweet lightly textured loaf or rolls. A slightly different recipe is made during Easter that is known as folar and often contains a hard-boiled egg.
Portuguese sweet bread is traditionally made around Christmas, and the Easter version is made around Easter, but it is also available year-round. It is traditionally baked in a stone oven known as a forno.
The bread is usually served simply with butter and is sometimes served with a rice pudding known as arroz doce.
