Don't be fooled. This is not true Hawaiian Bread. I'm a very seasoned experimental baker and have baked for decades. I've tried all the so-called Hawaiian bread recipes to perfection on this site. This is just regular bread with added sugar/flavor to it. The texture of the bread is not "cinnamon roll" chewy. Since there are a lot of Asians in Hawaii, I researched this further. I found a better bread recipe for "cinnamon roll" stretchy bread to use for Hawaiian bread on Allrecipes.com...http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chinese-Cocktail-Buns/ I'm still on the search for a better recipe using this Tang Zhong roux method originating from ancient China or Japan (I don't know which). Here's a photo of how chewy Hawaiian bread should appear when pulled apart which I will try soon...http://www.mykitchensnippets.com/2010/05/japanese-style-sweet-bun-dough.html - 18 Dec 2013
