This is a densly packed bread loaded with lots of flavor! Quite delicious. Makes me feel like I should be having this in Hawaii! I didn't change a thing. Excellent recipe, Karen. Thanks for sharing!

Further to my comments of yesterday,this loaf is decadent. Wonderful flavour, like ambrosia. Since macadamia nuts are a luxury item here, I might try blanched almonds when I make it again. I second Bev's opinion and thank Karen for sharing.

I really liked the flavor of this - sweet and sticky and very exotic. I had some complaints about the texture of the whole macadamias so I would chop them next time. Also, the bread stayed very thin (from the texture, it seemed like it did what it was supposed to - didn't seem overly dense) so next time I would use only one pan and watch carefully for cooking time.
