Sweet Bread - Kona Cafe, Polynesian Resort

Summer is here, which means it's now appropriate to make all kinds of tropical goodies. And so, I figured there's no better place to start than by making Sweet Bread from Kona Cafe. This recipe makes four mini-loaves - this bread is light, delicious, and easy to make. (Confession: this was my first time making bread ever. The result was fantastic. If I can do it, so can you.)

4 ¾  cups All Purpose Flour
Pinch Salt
¼ cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
3 Each Eggs – Room Temp
¼ cup Pineapple Juice Concentrate
4 Tablespoon Margarine - Softened
¾ cup Warm Water

To Make:
1. Combine warm water, pineapple juice concentrate, margarine and eggs.  Mix with the paddle attachment.

2. Combine dry ingredients, flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.  Add to liquid ingredients and mix with dough hook/your hands.

3. Mix until dough pulls away from sides of bowl.

4. Place dough in a large bowl and let rise until doubled in size, about 2-3 hours.

5. Turn dough out onto a floured surface.

6. Divide the dough into four 10 oz portions and form into balls, cut an X about ½” deep into the top of each ball.

7. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes in the warmest part of the kitchen.

8. Bake at 325F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
