Today I’m happy to be kicking off a brand-spanking new feature here at The Misadventures of Mrs. B – Foodie Friend Friday. Every other Friday I’ll be featuring another one of my foodie friends and inviting them to feature some of their work here.
My first featured Foodie is Katie from This Chick Cooks. Katie and I linked up at a lot of the same foodie blog hops and I couldn’t help but be won over by her and her blog. Her food is out-of-this-world and better yet, she pays it forward every week by featuring her favorite food posts and shining the spotlight on other bloggers. I think you’ll love her as much as I do!
Hi, I’m Katie from This Chick Cooks. Today I’m sharing a recipe for Sweet Hawaiian Bread, but first I wanted to thank Jen for having me guest post and tell you a little bit about myself. I love to cook and I’ve been in the kitchen trying out ideas and recipes since I was a teen. My favorite taste testers are my husband and my little guy, J. l’m always trying all sorts of new recipes and blogging is my outlet for sharing my latest kitchen adventures. A few of my recent favorites include: Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites, Whole Wheat English Muffins, Chocolate Surprise Cookies and Pesto Stromboli Tutorial.
I love Hawaiian bread and I’ve always thought it would be interesting to try making some, but just never got around to trying it out. Well, I finally came across a recipe in Taste of Home Cooks Who Care Cookbook, and decided to go ahead and give it a go. Now that I’ve done it I realized that making Hawaiian bread is actually really easy. And if you have a bread maker or food processor, the actual amount of hands on time is extremely short. I cut the bread up and served it with beef roast and barbecue sauce and the little guy said it was the bestest sandwich ever
PS- I didn’t have any pineapple juice when I was making the bread so I raided our juice box stash and used a juice box of orange tangerine juice and the bread still turned out super yummy.
Hawaiian Bread Recipe
Combine the water, juice,butter and milk and microwave it until it is about 115 degrees, or warm enough to comfortably stick your pinkie in for a few seconds and then add remaining liquid ingredients. Then, in a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, potato flakes, sugar, yeast, salt and ginger. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat until moistened, stirring in just enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1hour and 15 minutes.
Thanks again for having me, Jen. I hope you all will come visit me and check out some recipes
Oh. Mah. Gah. I am so all over this recipe – it reminds me of trips to Disney World with Rob, where we’d stay at The Polynesian and gorge on this bread as much as possible. I’ll have to give this a shot and bring a little of the magic to my own kitchen. Thanks, Katie!
What are you waiting for, beautiful readers? Go visit this chick ASAP! You’ll be so glad you did.
