This could almost be classified as another recipe. The first time I went to make this bread I didn't have all the ingredients. I omitted the potato flakes and lemon extract. Instead of 4 tablespoons of margarine, I used oil and I used 1 TSP of salt instead of 3/4 TSP. I made the bread in my bread machine, any crust setting works. Just a different variation. Read More

Not as sweet at the name suggest. The lemon extract seems to add an overpowering taste. Read More

The Hawaiian Bread had a wonderful smell and a lovely texture. It tasted great with or without butter. I made two batches in one day. One I gave to my mother who had never even heard of it before. She couldn't get enough. Read More

I just couldn't bring myself to pay 4 for a loaf in the store anymore and I think this came really close to store bought. I used a bit more sugar than called for. I don't have a bread machine so I sprinkled the yeast on top and let it set until bubbly then dissolved the sugar butter and salt in the water. Then I mixed in the other ingredients adding the flour last. Well people the stickiness depends on the humidity level. ADD MORE FLOUR if it is too sticky! Geeez! Yummy good stuff! I let the dough rise twice. You can form them into rolls (about 12) on the second rise. 350 25 minutes Read More

Instead of 1 cup of water, I used 1 cup of pineapple juice. I baked it in a 10" round pan and it turned out perfect. I put spinach dip in the Hawaiian bread and everyone enjoyed it. Read More

Not a bad bread but I think the flavor combination needs some work. Read More

This is a very easy bread to make. It wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be but quite tender and a really good flavor. The lemon extract is a good addition. I think the next time I make it (and I will make it again) I will increase the sugar - maybe double it and experiment with orange or pineapple extract in place of the lemon. Read More

I needed Kings Hawaiian bread. I needed it badly enough to do physical damage to anyone who stood in my way. Somehow, though, I turned kind of hippy and hate the thought of all those added 'ingredients' in commercial bread. So I bought myself some organic flour and settled in with this recipe. Holy sh#t. So easy and so amazing. I don't have a bread machine, so I did what others did: dissolved the (doubled because I NEEDED SWEET BREAD) sugar, salt and oil (because it seemed easier) in the water then let the yeast hang out in the mess and get frothy. Added everything else (plus an extra 1/4c flour on recommendation of everyone and swapped the lemon out for extra vanilla, because I want sweet bread, dagnabbit) and let it hang out an hour. I didn't have any issues with it exploding everywhere like other people did. Baked it 33 minutes and it is everything I ever hoped it would be, albeit a slightly crumblier version, but nothing unmanageable. The kids said it was too sweet, but I've had my suspicions about them for some time now and I'm pretty sure they're not mine. Probably not even human, if I had to guess. It's ok, though, because now I only have to fight my husband for the rest of the loaf. I'm certain he'll underestimate me in this battle. Read More
