Introduced to Hawai’i by Portuguese sugar workers during the 19th century, sweetbread has become a time-honored favorite among residents and visitors alike. The delicately sweet and moist Hawaiian sweetbread at Punalu’u Bake Shop originated from a traditional family recipe. When the recipe was adapted and prepared at a resort restaurant in Punalu’u (Ka’u District on the Big Island of Hawaii) in the 1970s, the sweetbread was an instant hit. To keep visitors and kama’aina supplied with this popular favorite, the Punalu’u Bake Shop was opened in 1991.
