Bolos Levedos (Portuguese Sweet Muffins)

If you've never had fresh bolos levedos from Fall River, you really haven't had a really good muffin. Here is a recipe from Stacy's mother, originally given in the traditional Portuguese style. --Mark


3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 pkg yeast in warm water
lemon rind (optional)


Proof the yeast for about 10 minutes. Mix all ingredients and knead the dough. Add milk or flour to the desired consistency. Let rise until it doubles. Roll out the dough until thin and then cut large circles. Cook over a hot skillet until browned on both sides.
