|Dough with Meringue, Raspberry Jam, and Almond Paste|
|The finished product! Soft, sweet dough wrapped around Raspberry Jam, Almond Paste, and Meringue topped with sliced almonds - tasted like it was from the bakery.|
For the Pina Colada version, I used a wonderful marmalade from Lourdes who sells it at the Channel Islands Farmers' Market, and I topped it with shredded coconut.
Stuffed, rolled, shaped, and cut - ready for second rise.
The bread tastes just like Hawaiian Sweet Bread, and the Pina Colada filling is over the top! This version is really unusual and delicious - a wonderful combination of texture and flavor.
