Hawaiian bread very similar to King's. Most recipes on Food.com/Zaar are for 1.5 lb loaves -- tried to reduce amounts with NO success. Came up with this for the 1lb loaf and machine. In all honesty, I used all-purpose flour (all I had in the house) first time making this "modified" recipe -- using tips from several sources and recipes. Absolutely fabulous!
- 2⁄3 cup pineapple juice (or orange)
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons butter (sliced into smaller pieces) or 2 1⁄2 tablespoons margarine (sliced into smaller pieces)
- 3 teaspoons coconut extract
- 1 pinch ground ginger
- 1⁄3 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 1⁄3 cups bread flour (or all-purpose)
- 1⁄3 cup instant potato flakes
- 1 teaspoon yeast (rapid or quick rising)
- Add ingredients to your bread machine pan in the order listed above.
- Use light setting and REGULAR bread (not "quick" even though you used rapid-rise yeast).
- This can be a high-rising bread.
- Also notable is that I always look at my bread once the machine has warmed up and it begins its first blending -- if it's too dry, I add a little milk or juice, if it's a little "wet" I add flour in teaspoons at a time -- just "eyeballing" the consistency.
- Your entire house will fill with the aroma of this lovely sweet bread while it bakes!
I can't imagine why no one has made and reviewed this recipe before. It is certainly a big winner! Deserves 10 stars! Absolutely scrumptious! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
