Brazilian Honey Bread – Pao de Mel is a spicy Brazilian honey bread that is superb with a crease of butter and a mug of coffee. The sweetness of the bread compliments a coffee every time. This loaf is ready to eat within 35 minutes of starting and has become a hot snack in my household. Using honey and cocoa powder with cloves and nutmeg gives this bread a taste you will adore. When I ask my children shall we buy or make a loaf they always ask for this. This bread also lasts well if keep cool in a bread bin or larder.
