Rhode Island Bakery Succeeds With Only One Product: Portuguese Muffins

April 26, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Family-owned Central Bakery in Tiverton, R.I., has been producing a unique breakfast bread known as bolo levedo – and only bolo levedo – since 1967. An import from Portugal’s Azores Islands, bolo levedo resembles an English muffin, but lacks the nooks and crannies, and is spongier and sweeter. Thriving Central Bakery supplies the delicacy (known locally as the “3 Meal Muffin”) to area supermarkets and to notable chefs around the country who use the bread for burger and sandwich buns.
