Portuguese Easter Bread (Folar de Pascoa)

From Justapinch.com’s Maggie May Schill

Growing up in an area with a large Portuguese population, the Easter season always meant bakeries offered Folar Da Pascoa (Portuguese Easter sweet bread).  It was always exciting to see the different variations bakeries offered – some even colored their eggs to add to the festive appearance. As a nostalgic recipe for me, I wanted to share in hopes you will consider enjoying it with friends and family this week.
