Bimini Bread Abm

"We enjoyed this sweet white bread when we visited Fort Lauderdale. I never had this and one bite I couldn’t stop eating it! You can serve with honey butter. This is a sweet bread. The bread we enjoyed was not dense. The Bimini (meaning "two islands") islands, consisting of North, South and East Bimini and Cay Sal Bank, are part of the Bahamian island chain, located south of Florida in the Caribbean. With research and what I had in my pantry this is what I created.I must say it is quite close to what we had in Florida a restaurant named Aruba. Use of the coconut does not bring it's flavor but tenderness."

Ready In:




  • Place ingredients in ABM according to your machines directions.
  • Set on dough cycle.
  • Let mix when all come together do adjust flour or milk if needed. But be careful not to add to much flour for it will produce a dense bread.
  • When dough cycle is complete, dough should be approximately doubled in size, remove dough, punch down and place in oiled baking pans. 1 Pullman pan, which is quite large or two bread pans as I used.
  • Place dough in oiled pans cover with plastic wrap and let raise 45 - 60 minutes till double the size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Score each loaf and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Mix the butter and honey together and spread 1/4 of it on the hot bread.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Serve at table whole for guests to rip apart while hot and top with remaining butter mixture.

  1. I cut this recipe in half to make 1 small loaf. I agree with chef Boomette that the bread was dense. It rose very, very little.
  2. I had to add more flour to the dough. Near 1 cup. I used the coconut flakes but couldn't taste it. I baked it in only 1 large pan. The bread is a bit too dense for our taste. But the next day I made french toast with it, and it was so yummy : recipe#347565 Thanks Rita :) Made for New Kids on the block tag game
