  • Author: Carole



  • 1 C mashed banana
  • 1 C crushed pineapple, with juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C hot milk
  • 1/2 C butter, softened
  • 2 tsp coconut extract
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 C white sugar
  • 2 packages yeast
  • 1 C instant potato flakes
  • 5 1/4 C bread flour


  1. 1.  Using your electric mixer with the dough hook, mix together the banana, pineapple, eggs, hot milk, butter, coconut extract, salt and sugar.  Once combined, sprinkle on the yeast and then mix it in.  Add the potato flakes and combine once again.  Add the flour, one cup at a time until all the flour mixes in, then add the next cup.  Knead for 3-5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  2. Cover and allow the dough to rise until double, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.  Once risen, dump the dough onto a floured surface and divide into 30 even pieces.  Roll the dough into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Cover and allow them to rise for another 30-45 minutes.  While they are rising, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.
