I wanted a Hawaiian-style bread like the pull-apart you find in the store. I wanted to make the dough in my bread machine. I took the suggestions of Jennifer 72--cut the recipe in half, added the salt, changed the vanilla extract to coconut extract. I addedd 2TBSP water to adjust for the 1/2 egg I didn't use.
I had to keep adding flour to the recipe to make a dough that I could handle because this is more of a batter bread. When the dough was right and the cycle was finished, I patted the dough out flat. I cut the dough into 18 or 20 small pieces. I rolled those pieces into small balls and placed them in a greased angel food pan. I let that rise till doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours. I baked it at 350degrees for about 35 minutes--till brown on top. I forgot to add some egg wash on top, could do that next time. Also, I might cover the bread or turn it down. The sweetness of the dough caused the brown top to get crispy instead of chewy.
After baking, I let it sit in the pan on a cooling rack for five minutes. Then I turned the bread upside down to remove it.
The guests at my Hawaiian-themed dinner party loved it, it made a great pull-apart bread.
If anyone tries it this way, I hope you measure how much extra flour you add. It might have been as much as 3/4cup+. I just kept adding flour. Also, I would omit the substitution for the 1/2 egg, just forget about adding extra water.
Really glad that it came out so well. Enjoy, and hope my comments help.
