Bread Mix Review – Classic Hearth Hawaiian Bread — 11 Comments

  1. Hi Marsha, got my hubby a new Zojirushi bread machine for Christmas this year as our old machine finally gave up the ghost. It’s been a few years since we regularly used it anyway. I bought a couple of mixes, including this one, to break in the machine. The flavor is really good, but the second loaf we tried just seemed to have issues. The bread is rising more on one side of the machine than the other and we aren’t sure if it’s the arrangement of the heating coils, or the kneading paddles or what. The bread tastes good but this last loaf looks a bit like a hippo…big rear, and smaller head! Both mixes were purchased at the same grocery store, about a week apart, so there may be something with the yeast. The dough just seemed to want to stick on one side of the machine…perhaps it needed more flour or water?

    Thanks, I’m going to try some of your recipes next.


    • Laura, congratulations on the new bread machine!

      If I remember correctly the mix was for a smaller machine. That doesn’t mean that you can’t make it with a two pound Zojirushi, but sometimes all that extra room makes for some odd looking loaves. Your hippo description is hilariously accurate. That problem should go away when you make a recipe made for a two pound machine. I find my sour milk bread to be a solid performer.

      Let me know how it goes.

      • I just came across your page and the comment section by googling reviews for the bread. This break mix is currently on sale at my local Harris Teeter, just so you know that another store chain carries it. Although the bread sounds tasty, I am going to opt to use your link up top for the homemade hawaiian bread. Thank you!
