I made fabulous sticky buns out of this dough. Put in bread machine on dough cycle. Roll out into a rectangle, spread with filling: 1/2c soft butter, 1/4c flour, 3/4c brown sugar, 1T cinnamon mixed together. Roll-up and cut into 1" slices. Spray 2 pans (9x13 each) with Pam. Spread caramel topping in pans: 1c melted butter, 1+1/2c brown sugar, 1/2c corn syrup. Sprinkle chopped macadamia nuts and coconut over topping. Put rolls in pans, cover and let rise until double (30 - 40 min). Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 min. Let cool in pans 5 min, turn over onto a platter or cookie sheet covered with parchment and let caramel run over rolls before removing the pan. Seriously decadent...people are begging for more.

This sounded great and everyone seemed to love it by the reviews so maybe I only thought I followed the recipe to a "T". It overflowed my 1 1/2lb bread machine pan and ruined the maker entirely with burning all over the interior so the machine is now in the trash and I have to buy a new one. Be aware while trying the recipe Read More

Great tasting bread, Teresa. Some of the reviewers suggested that it tasted like Kings Hawaiian Bread. Never having tasted that, I can only imagine....but I will tell you it was wonderful with full flavor and very good texture. I let my bread machine go thru the dough cycle, then I took the dough out and formed the loaf, baking it in a 9x5 loaf pan at 375 degrees for 33 minutes. PERFECT. It makes aromatic toast, too. Yummy. My hubby didn't enjoy it as much as I, he said it tasted too much like banana, well DUH! Maybe I'll cut the bananas to 1/4 cup for his sake next time. Read More

Absolutely Fabulous. The flavor is just like "Kings Hawaiian Bread" that is purchsed in the grocery store. The only difference is that the crust is not as soft. The first time I made it I didn't measure "exactly" and it did not raise nor brown. The second time I followed the instructions to the "T" and it turned out perfect. You will love this bread.....It will take you all of 5 minutes to throw all the ingredients together. Read More

My 10 year old daughter and her friends love this bread with coconut flavor. But my husband is not so crazy about coconut flavor so I made it with vanilla extract instead of coconut and he loved it! I make the dough in my bread machine and take it out and bake it in the oven for about 35-40 minutes. It comes out nicer and slice better. Thank you for the wonderful recipe! Read More

Excellent! So easy and moist. This was the first recipe i made in my new bread machine i got for christmas. I had no coconut extract so i just used vanilla and i didnt have any potoato flakes so i just used 1/3 more cup of flour and 1/4 cup more milk and it still turned out great! Read More

I did mine in the oven with a few modifications. OVEN MODIFICATION: I doubled the recipe: In a mixer, I combined 1 banana, 1/2 c. pineapple, and coconut milk until it made 2 cups of the blended mix. I added the ingredients one by one in a separate bowl whisking slowly(doubling the ingredients) until everything but the yeast and flour was combined. I proofed the yeast with a couple of tbsp of water and added to the wet mix. After mixing that in, I added flour slowly stirring... then kneading after 4 cups. I got up to 5 1/2 cups flour for the double recipe. At that point, I put the dough into a lightly greased bowl and put in the oven on about 100 degrees to rise. I waited for about 1.5 hr, then formed the dough into 3 loaves and put into the 100 degree oven again to rise for another 1.5 hr. After that, I removed the 3 bread pans from the oven, preheated to 350, and baked for about 40 minutes. VERY VERY GOOD! Read More

This bread is wonderful. Tastes great and has a fine texture. I used the sweet bread setting on my bread machine and the loaf was high and perfectly light brown. Great with homemade strawberry freezer jam! Read More

This the exact recipe I was looking for! I did have to add an extra 1/4c of milk as it was very dry. But it turned out moist thick and is a favorite! I even didn't add the coconut extract and it still tasted like I thought it would. Thanks for a great recipe!! Read More
