These are so good. I got this recipe from my step daughter!

As far as homemade bread goes, this is fairly easy to make. The results are unlike any other bread we've made. It is sweet and rich in flavor. If you make rolls, they're buttery, light, and fluffy. A loaf will make the perfect grilled cheese or french toast. We could not stop snacking on this. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 6 c
    all-purpose flour, divided in half; plus an additional 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 large
    eggs
  • 2 c
    pineapple juice, room temperature
  • 3/4 c

  • 2 pkg
    yeast (.25 oz each)
  • 1/2 c
    butter, melted (8 Tbsp)

How to Make Homemade King Hawaiian Rolls or Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl beat your eggs.
  2. Add the pineapple juice, sugar, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Mix well.
  3. Put 3 cups of flour into a large bowl.
  4. Stir in your egg mixture until well combined.
  5. Sprinkle in the yeast packets, one at a time, mixing well.
  6. Add the remaining 3 cups of flour and mix well. If it becomes to difficult to stir with a wooden spoon, just use your hands! Make sure all of the flour is well incorporated.
  7. The dough should be tacky to the touch but not overly sticky. If it appears too wet, sprinkle in a bit of extra flour. Just a tablespoon or so at a time.
  8. Cover your bowl with a clean kitchen towel. Set it in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  9. Remove your dough from the bowl and knead in an additional 1/2 cup of flour. I kneaded mine 10 to 15 times, making sure the flour was well incorporated.
  10. Form the dough into rolls or loaf and place in buttered pans.
  11. Cover and place in a warm place to rise until the dough doubles in size. If making rolls, let rise for 1 hour. For loaves, let rise for 90 minutes.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  13. Brush tops with melted butter. Serve warm.
