"This bread reminds me of Hawaiian Bread when I use a yellow cake mix and vanilla or almond extract. The possibilities are endless.......try chocolate, lemon, caramel, etc."

  1. This bread was very tasty, but I did have to add about 8 tbsp of flour to the mix in order to get the right consistency of dough in my bread machine. The crust was thick and very browned, but it was a very good, sweet tasting bread. However, if you don't like a chewy crust, this may not be the bread for you.
  2. I've made this cake bread several times. It smells great baking, and is a treat for breakfast. (I always add 3 tbl. sugar to the listed ingredients) It seems to matter what brand cake mix you use. WhenI used a "name brand" the cake bread came out higher, than it did when I used Walmart's own brand of cake mix.
  3. I will have to try this one again. My loaf sunk in the middle. I did notice the loaf was a bit watery but since it was a cake bread I assumed it was supposed to be that way. The texture of the bread was chewy. I think sugar should have been added to this as well. I set the loaf on light, but it came out with a thick crust for some reason. I will try to take it out earlier this time. Will rate again once I make the next loaf and will post my adaptations, and so on if successfull.


<p>I love to cook and bake! I work for a bank. I love to shop for FUN! I love old vintage cookbooks with simple, tasty recipes. My passion is SEE FOOD....see it and eat it!!! Pet peeves are incomplete recipes and recipes that call for fancy ingredients. If I had a bunch of free time with no responsibilities I would shop til I dropped and spend money like there is no tomorrow....:) My hubby is a tow truck driver and we have an 25 yr old son. We have 4 minature longhaired dachshunds.... I am a breeder as well (with a collection of rare color/pattern combinations).Also, another little fact about me is that I am related to Zaar Chef NursLinda.</p>
