Sweet Hawaiian Bread

"If the loaf browns too much during baking, cover it with foil. Cook time includes standing time. From Easy to Bake, Easy to Make."

1 loaf




  • Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a large bowl.
  • Add water, milk, butter, honey and 2 eggs. Mix very well, adding more flour if necessary, until a soft dough forms.
  • Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until it's smooth and stretchy, about 10 minutes.
  • Place dough in a greased bowl (I use the one I mixed everything in). Cover and let it rise in a warm place until it's doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Grease baking sheet. Punch down dough. Shape dough int oa ball. Place on baking sheet. Cover; let rise until doubled in size, 30-40 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat remaining egg in a small bowl until smooth.
  • Uncover the loaf and brush it with the egg. Bake the bread until golden, about 30 minutes.
  • Place on a wire reack to cool.

  1. The recipe is fantastic, but could you kindly remove my posts?
  2. Kindly remove. This isn't saving the way I write it for some reason.


  1. This bread came out perfect on the first try. I only wish I had taken a picture of our braided loaf to add to the site. It wasn't too sweet, and came out a nice full loaf. I will make this bread again.

  3. Fantastic recipe, although being new to bread making, I wasn't sure what to expect! The dough will be very loose, soft, and sticky for those who do not know, and since it is a heavyish bread don't ball it too tight when you put it in the oven (I needed to cook it longer and gave it a crispier bottom for my trouble). Otherwise, very easy to follow, very tasty, I live in a house with 19 other people who all got to havea taste, so a big 20 thumbs up!
  4. This was wonderful! We substituted spelt flour for the wheat and it turned out perfect. Thank you!!!
  5. I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to bread baking, but this turned out very well! It was easy to put together, and we really liked the subtle sweetness. It kind of reminded me of brioche. Yum! Thanks JESMom!
