Reviews for Sweet Tropical Loaves
"I would bake this again if I can find out how to make it less dry. We liked the taste but it was too dry and didn't slice very well. I hope someone give tell me what I did wrong or how to correct the problem."
"I tried this recipe for a Mother's Day get together. It was great! I changed it a little. I added chopped mandarin oranges to the batter and I added rum extract to the glaze instead. Wonderful tropical fun!!"
"thanks for the recipe. this sounds very much like a bread we had at the Hyatt Regency on Kauaii.I have tried to get the recipe from the hotel but they just havn't sent the right one to me. Thanks so much.Liz"
