I had this in Funchal last week and can't wait to make it myself. Going to make it tomorrow evening for my garlic bread-loving granddaughters. In Funchal, they made it with oil for me, rather than butter, as I am a vegan ­čą░ I will make it with vegan-friendly butter. I will update after I have made it.

Yeast is a fungus so perfectly fine for vegans.
