Ohana's Famous Dinner Bread Recipe

Ohana means family! 
Trust us...one taste of this bread and your family will not leave one crumb behind on their dinner plates!

I love having dinner at the Polynesian.  Nothing says family more than breaking bread over a nice family style meal.  It's a bonus when you are enjoying the meal at the most magical place on earth.

I stumbled upon the recipe for Ohana's "famous" bread in a cook book many years ago and I had to make it.  The recipe has become a dinner favorite in our family.

The recipe is straightforward.
I followed the same directions but decided to make rolls instead of bread.


Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana, crushed (I prefer the taste when increased to 2 bananas)
  • 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

Instructions:

  • Place banana, egg yolk, water, shortening, salt, sugar, flour, powdered milk, and yeast in a mixing bowl.  
  • Mix on low for two minutes.  
  • Switch to medium until dough pulls away from sides of the bowl.
  • 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. (I formed mine into 6 rolls). 
  • Bake at 325 until golden brown and rises double the size.
  • Remove and brush with melted butter.

My rolls took about 25 minutes to make but only 2 minutes to devour.
Funny how that happens!
