Sweet Bread

Sweet bread may be cooked in a loaf, but it rarely is used like regular bread for sandwiches or as counterpoint for a savory meal. When made with fruit or preserves, it is a favorite breakfast dish in lieu of a muffin or donut, or as the basis for interesting French toast. Among the latter is the Portuguese raisin French toast at J.P. Spoonem’s in Cranston, Rhode Island. It is raisin bread topped with butter, brown sugar, raisins, bananas, walnuts, and whipped cream. At Jamm’s Restaurant in Las Vegas, a “pot of bread” is muffin-sweet, available garlanded with Nutella, fruit, or cinnamon and raisins. Hawaiian sweet bread is something else. A variant of Portuguese sweet bread that is made with eggs, butter, and plenty of sugar, it is a name brand sold as buns and as rolls for burgers and hot dogs.
