Sharing is caring!

There are few things that smell better than baking a loaf of bread. This particular Hawaiian bread recipe will make your kitchen smell divine and it’s such a treat to eat. 

If you’ve made monkey bread, know that you already basically know how to make bubble bread. Bubble bread is just another name for monkey bread. The only difference with this particular version is you slice it into slices of bread instead of pulling it apart like traditional monkey bread. If you would rather create it to be pulled apart bread, bake it in a bundt cake pan instead. 

Hawaiian bubble bread is a delightful version of monkey bread with pineapples, cherries, toasted coconut, biscuits, and more.

Hawaiian Bubble Bread Tips

  • If you do not want to use prepackaged biscuits you can make your own monkey bread from scratch by making a simple biscuit recipe. I personally take the easy way by using canned biscuits or I use Alton Brown’s southern biscuit recipe
  • If you like nuts in your bread I recommend using either macadamia, pecans or almonds. 1/2 a cup to 1 cup of chopped nuts will be more than enough. Obviously, macadamia nuts will make it even more of a Hawaiian dessert.
