Etobicoke's favourite Italian bakery and a Toronto institution -- SanRemo Bakery -- is known for doling out tarts, cakes, breads, donuts and more! We were all sad to see them close their doors in efforts to help curb the spread of COVID-19 but thankfully the bakery has shared Ed's recipe for Italian sweet bread -- just in time to celebrate Easter!
Check out the original recipe below and make sure to enter in SanRemo's Italian sweet bread challenge on Instagram and tag them for a chance to win a $50 gift card. The contest ends on April 15, 2020. Also check out Ed's tutorial video below for a step-by-step guide on how to make the bread.
Sweet Bread 7 Steps
Place all dry ingredients into your mixer and mix on low speed.
Add butter, milk and eggs and mix at medium speed (6-7 minutes). Switch to high speed until dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl.
Leave to sit in a bowl for 45 minutes covered with a damp cloth.
Cut the dough into 4oz to 6oz pieces. Knead the dough to remove extra air, (test consistency of dough with "window effect"). Let balls sit for 15 minutes.
Proof and place on baking sheet.
Brush with egg wash and top with a generous amount of sugar on top.
Bake at 345 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.
