Bimini Bread

Hello. I  am on a quest for the recipe for Bimini bread. I read the feed from here and a few suggested formula's and came to the conclusion as the person from here did. They were not the recipe either. At ask.com and allrecipe.com there were a few  suggested recipe's but they fell short of being the right ingredients as well. Does this subject  ring any bells for anyone?  Thanks.

Hi  and thanks for the info on the posts already here. I had read them and was getting very encouraged by them. This is what prompted to ask here. I thought to pick up where it left off and just maybe....just maybe...it was found and shared here by now. The suggestion the "honey-butter" might be the ingredient missing from the posted recipe's sounds/feels like the right direction to go in, since I know the taste of Bimini Bread. I am going to attempt to make it with this info but I am a novice at best. I am hoping motivation and persistance will help me where experience fails me. Wish me luck good folks. Um...if anyone here wants to try those recipe's too or is willing to help me to evaluate and incorporate honey/butter in those recipe's posted I sure would be grateful. Or just watch the newbie and chuckle! sheesh....   :)

BTW...thanks for the "search box" suggestion! Sometimes I am standing on the answer and can't even see it!

Hi. Just to let you know that a really kind person from has sent me what appears to be the recipe I have been looking for and I will know as soon as I make it. The ingredients are perfect as to what my "taste memory" senses. it is unlike the other recipe's I've found, the formula appears true to the bread. I hope I can do it justice. Wish me luck! I will get to you all for anyone who may be curious how this turns out. A great big thank you to Chuck!!

Argh! Sorry for all the typo demons attacking my last post! I was a bit excited at having just read the possible correct Bimini Bread recipe. Sheesh. Sorry. :)

I know mine are on a regular basis.

However, the real question is, was the recipe good, and if so can you PLEASE pass it along, as I followed the thread with interest but never tried the bread, and if its good, would love to try it, as its probably as close as I will ever get to the experience of eating "real" Bimini Bread.

Sleepy fingers walking this morning.  I am going to grocery store today amd will try the recipe tomorrow. I wanted to bake it as soon as I got the recipe but I decided to read through the basic bread baking tutorials presented here as I have only made bread once before. I've been mixing butter and honey as I think the right ratio is key to this bread. ::fingers crossed:: I'm not quite happy with it yet and I am going to try whipped honey instead. I will post as soon as I do and report the results which if I am very lucky  will taste like the bread. I will gladly share it. Also let me share this suggestion made to me, type Bimini Bread in this site's search box and you will find a few suggested recipe's offered. I didn't try them since they sounded like something was missing to taste. Thank you for responding!
