I have never enjoyed dinner at Ohana but have had the pleasure of enjoyed the lovely character breakfast each time my husband and I have stayed at the Polynesian. My love of Lilo and Stitch just trumps my want for dinner here even though I consider trying it trip after trip. I stumbled upon the recipe for the "famous" bread on the Disney Recipes Facebook page and bookmarked it long ago. The recipe was straightforward, and I followed the same directions but split mine into rolls. The only thing I would change about this was maybe adding a second banana because the flavor wasn’t as strong as I would have liked and it didn’t quite have the consistency of a fruit bread. (It tasted more like a Hawaiian Sweet Bread than the treat I've heard described so many times.)
1 ripe banana, crushed (but remember I think this needs to be increased to at least 2)
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup self-rising bread flour
4 tsp. shortening
1 egg yolk
3 Tbsp. powdered milk
1 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. yeast
4 Tbsp. water
1/2 cup butter
1. Place banana, egg yolk, water, shortening, salt, sugar, flour, powdered milk, and yeast in a mixing bowl; mix on low for two minutes and then on medium until dough pulls away from sides of the bowl.
2. Dust sides of bowl with flour so dough does not stick. Let rise to top of bowl. Cut dough into two pieces and roll tightly into loaf shape. (Instead, I made mine into 6 rolls).
3. Bake at 325 until golden brown and rise double the size.
4. Remove and (optional) brush with melted butter. My rolls took about 25 minutes.
