“Adapted from a delicious bread served at Disney's Polynesian Resort. Ohana means "family". The pineapple and coconut give it a truly tropical taste! I have found using the food processor makes the dough fool-proof, and I mix my yeast mixture in a large Pyrex measure so it is easier to pour into the processor.”
