I copied this a couple of years ago, but have never tried it. The comments were that it was very good.

6 1/2 to 7 C flour
3/4 C mashed potato flakes
2/3 C sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
3 eggs, beaten
2 pkg dry yeast
2 tsp vanilla
1 C milk
1/2 C margarine
1/2 water
1 C pineapple juice, room temp

in a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, potato flakes, sugar, salt, ginger and yeast. In a medium sauce pan heat milk, water and margarine until 120 degrees. Add warm liquid, vanilla, pineapple juice and eggs to flour mixture. Beat with a mixer for 4 minutes at medium speed. Add 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour and stir by hand. Knead for 5 to 8 minutes. Place in a large bowl; let rise until doubled in size. Punch down and divide into 3 parts. Form into 3 round balls and place in 3 greased round pans. let rise until doubled. Bake at 375 for 25 to 35 minutes. Remove from pan immediately. These loaves freeze well.
Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

SWEET!! I can do this, I believe. the recipes I have ran across before were not the best. I ended up pitching the finished products, actually.
I'm not new at baking bread, but these recipes made me look like a novice.
this one has your basic bread-making steps and I'm pretty sure it will do
nicely. I do wonder if all-purpose or bread flour would be best...
thanks a bunch-I will let u know how it goes. today is baking day.

Thumbs up

okay, here's the update. first of all, you will need WAY more than the amt.
of flour in the recipe. I figure that by the time I got a smoothly elastic
dough I had kneaded in another 3-4 cups. it was too sticky to work with
otherwise. my hands and knead-board were coated
with the stuff! it took about 10 minutes of knead time before I was
satisfied. I set it to rise like I normally do, in my oven with a bowl of
hot water and went on with my business for about an hour. when I went
in to check it I had a mini-mushroom cloud in there! I have never seen
bread dough rise like that. must've been the pineapple juice.
after punching it down I had to work a lot of air bubbles out-and I do
mean a lot. this recipe will easily give you 4 loaves, but I did 3 and
left them in the bread pans. the second rise was just as massive as
the first. I started them in a cold oven and set the temp. at 375.
after 25 minutes I had results better than I could have hoped for.
I got 3 large, soft loaves with a soft crust and texture and light flavor
with a touch of sweetness. I used raw sugar and cut the amount in
half. I'm glad I did because I think the bread would have been too
sweet for using for general purpose.

so I am totally stoked. this recipe is a keeper for sure.
Thanks Velochic!

I really don't know how to make this bread, but after years of living in Hawaii, I do think it is of Portuguese origin, so look there.

my previous neighbors were Samoan from Hawaii, and the recipe that I
received following my request pretty much turned out an identical bread
to what they made. whatever origin it actually is, I got what I was looking
