Fluffy tender Hawaiian Luau Bread from the shores of the Hawaii Islands!
Along with all the amazing fish, kahlua pork, and tropical fruit we ate, we also enjoyed some ridiculously addictive bread!
We discovered my all-time favorite at a little coffee shop south of Kona on the Island of Hawaii.
The Coffee Shack is literally a shanty hanging off the side of a mountain, overlooking the ocean. The views of lush tropical plants and endless water are a sight to behold.
We visit The Coffee Shack every time we go to the Big Island and are always amazed by the rich Kona coffee, their take on comfort food with a tropical twist, and the bread!
They make several varieties of homemade bread that are used in their breakfast and lunch menu. (They also serve some of the best desserts we found in the islands.)
Yet their Luau Bread is pure insanity. Soft moist slightly-sweet yeast bread with little chunks of coconut, pineapple, carrot, and macadamia nuts speckled throughout.
It’s the bread of your dreams. The kind of bread that can be used for french toast or sandwiches, yet needs nothing to perfect its flavor and texture.
Once we returned home, I knew Luau Bread was going on my recipe testing list. Well today, my version of Hawaiian Luau Bread is ready for release.
It’s soft and rich with just a touch of sweetness.
Similar to brioche, it has a decadent buttery flavor and pliable texture. Each piece has little bits of moist carrot, coconut, pineapple and macadamia nut to add tropical appeal.
Yet not so much that the dough is weighed down.
Our Hawaiian Luau Bread recipe is so tantalizing, it needs no butter or jam to improve its delicious slices.
However, if you choice to spread passion fruit preserves over the top, we won’t judge.
Hawaiian Luau Bread is the perfect comfort food to lift your spirits in the cold winter months.
Make a loaf today. Then close your eyes, take a bite, and experience paradise!
