Hawaiian Sweet Bread

Good Morning and welcome to the country. It's a rainy day here so I decided to dig around in my recipe stash for something I haven't baked for awhile. To my amazement I found this one. Why this sweet buttery yumminess got lost in the recipe vortex I will never know.

This is a very easy and versatile bread. The kids love it toasted and it can be made into rolls too. When you have extra time give this one a try. You will be hooked!

Hawaiian Sweet Bread

4 cups of all purpose flour (I used bread flour for a smoother texture)
1/2 cup of sugar
2 envelopes of active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
2 Tablespoons honey ( I doubled to 4, trust me its better!)
3 large eggs divided

Combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour, salt, yeast and sugar in a large bowl. Mix very well. Add water, milk and honey stir for another 4 to 5 minutes till all incorporated. Add remaining flour forming a soft dough.
Knead dough on a floured surface till smooth and elastic, 10 minutes or so.Place in a greased bowl and toss to coat. Cover and let rise 50 minutes to 1 hour.
Grease a baking sheet and punch down dough. Shape into a ball, place on baking sheet and let rise till doubled, 40-45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat remaining egg and brush loaf well. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Loaf will sound hollow when tapped. Place on wire rack to cool.

I hope you give this bread a try. Stop back by and leave a comment if you do. Thank you for stopping by. There is a loaf of bread calling my name. Hi, my name is Debby and I am a breadaholic!
