King's Hawaiian Bread

Happy 60th Anniversary to King's Hawaiian Bread/Bakery! Last week our local paper ran an article with pictures and recipes in celebration of their anniversary. Their breads and rolls have a very distinct sweet flavor and yellowish color. They use all natural products, including real eggs and butter in all of their baked goods. 

Between their two plants, they are producing over a million pounds of bread products a week, and their sales have doubled in the last 5 years, so someone is eating their bread! In case you didn't have the opportunity to see their recipes, I decided I would share a couple of them with you here.

They also have two King's Hawaiian Restaurants/Bakeries in our area. They have a large menu that features Portuguese and Hawaiian dishes. We have eaten there several times in the past few years and have enjoyed taking out of town guests there for a meal. My parents especially enjoyed going there because of the years they spent living in Hawaii. My dad was in the Navy, stationed in Honolulu and I was actually born at the Tripler Army Hospital in Honolulu. They love the island food and are always looking for a great restaurant that features that style of food. If you are ever in the area you should check them out. I will warn you, when you enter the restaurant, you go through and wait for a table in the bakery!

  1. I used to buy Hawaiian Bread regularly when my children were still at home. I remember that we all liked it toasted with jam. That chocolate bread pudding sounds delicious.
