    This sounded great and everyone seemed to love it by the reviews so maybe I only thought I followed the recipe to a "T". It overflowed my 1 1/2lb bread machine pan and ruined the maker entirely with burning all over the interior so the machine is now in the trash and I have to buy a new one.

    I made fabulous sticky buns out of this dough. Put in bread machine on dough cycle. Roll out into a rectangle, spread with filling: 1/2c soft butter, 1/4c flour, 3/4c brown sugar, 1T cinnamon mixed together. Roll-up and cut into 1" slices. Spray 2 pans (9x13 each) with Pam. Spread caramel topping in pans: 1c melted butter, 1+1/2c brown sugar, 1/2c corn syrup. Sprinkle chopped macadamia nuts and coconut over topping. Put rolls in pans, cover and let rise until double (30 - 40 min). Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 min. Let cool in pans 5 min, turn over onto a platter or cookie sheet covered with parchment and let caramel run over rolls before removing the pan. Seriously decadent...people are begging for more.  -  22 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great tasting bread, Teresa. Some of the reviewers suggested that it tasted like Kings Hawaiian Bread. Never having tasted that, I can only imagine....but I will tell you it was wonderful with full flavor and very good texture. I let my bread machine go thru the dough cycle, then I took the dough out and formed the loaf, baking it in a 9x5 loaf pan at 375 degrees for 33 minutes. PERFECT. It makes aromatic toast, too. Yummy. My hubby didn't enjoy it as much as I, he said it tasted too much like banana, well DUH! Maybe I'll cut the bananas to 1/4 cup for his sake next time.  -  03 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
