This could almost be classified as another recipe. The first time I went to make this bread I didn't have all the ingredients. I omitted the potato flakes and lemon extract. Instead of 4 tablespoons of margarine, I used oil and I used 1 TSP of salt instead of 3/4 TSP. I made the bread in my bread machine, any crust setting works. Just a different variation.

Not as sweet at the name suggest. The lemon extract seems to add an overpowering taste.

The Hawaiian Bread had a wonderful smell and a lovely texture. It tasted great with or without butter. I made two batches in one day. One I gave to my mother who had never even heard of it before. She couldn't get enough.

I just couldn't bring myself to pay $4 for a loaf in the store anymore and I think this came really close to store bought. I used a bit more sugar than called for. I don't have a bread machine so I dissolved the sugar, butter and salt in the water, then sprinkled the yeast on top and let it set until bubbly. Then I mixed in the other ingredients adding the flour last. Well people, the stickiness depends on the humidity level. ADD MORE FLOUR if it is too sticky! Geeez! Yummy good stuff!

Instead of 1 cup of water, I used 1 cup of pineapple juice. I baked it in a 10" round pan and it turned out perfect. I put spinach dip in the Hawaiian bread and everyone enjoyed it.

Not a bad bread, but I think the flavor combination needs some work.

This is a very easy bread to make. It wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be but quite tender and a really good flavor. The lemon extract is a good addition. I think the next time I make it (and I will make it again) I will increase the sugar - maybe double it and experiment with orange or pineapple extract in place of the lemon.

I love this bread!! It is sweet and moist and delicious! I serve it with honey butter. I make the dough in my bread machine and then bake in the oven.
