Every now and again you just want a nice sweet, soft bread. I must say this is a wonderful, versatile bread that can be used for just about anything. We have done breakfast sandwiches, roast beef sandwiches, cheese burgers, chicken sandwiches, even made smaller versions to have as a dinner roll side. You can do just about anything with this bread. Did I mention how oh so soft it is as well? These hawaiian rolls are very simple and easy to make.
- 2 cups of pineapple juice
- 1 Tablespoon of yeast
- 1 egg
- 5-6 cups of all purpose flour
Beat your egg in the pineapple juice. Place in the bowl of your stand mixer then add yeast. While using the dough hook attachment add the flour slowly 1 cup at a time. You want to form a soft, elastic dough, not a tough, hard dough. I like to get up to 4 cups and allow my mixer to knead for about 10 mins. then i will check if it is still sticky or not. If it is still sticky i will add 1 more cup of flour and allow to need again for 10 more mins. I will add the last 1 cup only if it is sticky. If you added 6 cups and is still sticky allow to knead for 15mins. Often just the process of kneading with solve that problem. Adding too much flour will weight the bread down, we don’t want that. Once you have a soft dough allow to rise until double in size. Punch down and knead on a greased counter top. Cut dough into about 12-14 equal pieces. Roll into a ball and place in a greased baking pan. Allow to rise until doubled, then bake at 375 for 20 mins. Once done brush melted butter on top. For dinner rolls cut dough into 24-28 equal pieces, roll into a ball and place in greased baking dish or muffin tins bake at 375 for 15 mins.
