    Those recipes look good and i will try some of them. but just to add this was in loaf style and they cut nice thick slices that held together very nicely and was rather dense but at the same time light. guess i will have a go at some of the ones posted thank you! i don't usually make or eat white bread but this was an exceptionally good tasting textured bread. icon_smile.gif guess i'll have fun trying out recipes until i find the right one icon_smile.gif

    sounds to me like Hawaiian Sweet Bread, also. They sell it in most grocery stores, the brand is, "King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread". It comes in an orange package, in one of those pie tinsn inside a regular bread bag. I know a lot of our stores sell it by the deli's.

    I don't know if you have a bread machine, but I've bought bread machine mixes at the store for Hawiian Sweet Bread as well.

    You brought back a wonderful memory mentioning the Samoa Cookhouse. My DH and I will celebrate our 30th Anniversary this Nov. For our honeymoon after flying into San Francisco and spending a few days we drove to Eureka and back again over 10 days, going along Highway 1 on the Coast on the way up and going over to HWY 101 and going through wine country on the way back. We discovered the SC at lunch time, we had the most delicious fish and cherry pie, we loved it so much we went back for dinner.

    Nothing I have ever read links it to the island of Samoa, so I think the sweet white bread is a coincedence.

    I live in Eureka and we frequently eat at the Samoa Cookhouse. The name comes from the small island (Samoa...California) where it is located..not the South Pacific island. I was wondering if you were ever able to get close to their bread recipe as they closely gaurd it and I LOVEtheir bread. Its amazing
