Kimi's notes for this recipe:
My friend and I made this bread yesterday for my radiation techs. We made it in the bread machine on the dough cycle. It is a gooey dough so don't be alarmed. It asks for 6 cups of flour and we ended up using 7...You will just have to see how your dough looks. My techs were so excited to get some homemade bread. I didn't stay long enough to ask if they liked it. My family all gave it a thumbs up.

Nothing says lovin' like real, homemade bread! Treat yourself to some of this wonderful recipe.


In small bowl dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the yeast mixture, eggs, pineapple juice, 1/2 cup water, sugar ginger, vanilla, and melted butter. Gradually stir in flour until a stiff batter is formed. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
Deflate the dough and turn it onto a well floured surface. Divide into 3 equal pieces and divide into 8 balls. You should end up with 3 pans of buns.Grease and flour 3 cake pans. cover and let rise again till doubled about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350F.
Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or till bottom are browned. Remove from oven and either spray with cooking spray or butter tops.

Kimi this looks great, I'm going to make it this weekend because I bought a pork roast that I'm going to use as pulled pork and I wanted to get Hawaiian bread to serve it. Now I will just make my own. Thank you so much for sharing.
