Knockoff Hawaiian Rolls Recipe

Anyone that has eaten a King's Hawaiian roll know the sweet soft addicting flavor.
Well these are a good likeness to them and I will definitely be making them again. One of my all time favorites. I just adapted our egg bread recipe with a few more ingredients using pineapple juice instead of water and was pleasantly surprised!

1 1/2 cups pineapple juice room temperature
6 to 7 cups flour
4 eggs yolks room temperature
1 egg for the tops beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 packages dry yeast
1 stick butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla or coconut extract

In a large bowl add the yeast and dissolve in 1/4 cup lukewarm water stir for 5 minutes. Add the pineapple juice, sugar, salt, vanilla and butter and stir. Add the egg yolks then slowly add the flour to make a soft dough. I use a heavy duty mixed to blend evenly. After well combined place in a greased bowl cover with a wet towel and set in a warm area to rise for 2 hours.
Punch down and form into small balls into rectangular pans. Make slash marks with a razor blade. They will not all look the same.  Cover and let rise again until doubled.
Preheat oven to 350 until hot. Bake on 350 brushing with beaten egg and bake until browned around 30 minutes.

  1. Love King's Hawaiian Bread! Will have to give this a try, Curt! Hey, have you considered subbing a portion of the butter for coconut oil? That way you could leave out the extract. Just a thought. :)

  3. I have never eaten those Hawaiian rolls but I really love the idea of using pineapple juice as the liquid in bread.
