King’s Hawaiian Bread (Copycat)
We absolutely love this bread. My sister won’t buy anything but. It’s kinda expensive so when I came across this, I had to add it here so we could always have it and everyone else could enjoy it too. The first time I ever had it, it was with the Spinach Veggie dip…OMGOSH it was DEEEVINE! So…next time you don’t wanna spend the money, whip it up yourself! It does take a while…but so worth it!
Note: For a personal touch, I painted the loaves with beaten egg yolk with a tablespoon of water, and sprinkle with sesame seeds
