How to Make King's Hawaiian bread (copykat)


  1. Beat the eggs. Add the pineapple juice, sugar, ginger, vanilla and butter.
  2. Place 3 cups of flour in a large bowl. Stir in the egg mixture until well combined. Sprinkle in the yeast, one packet at a time, and mix.
  3. Add the remaining 3 cups of flour and mix. Blending with a spoon will be hard, so you may have to use your hands. Make sure it is thoroughly combined. Cover the bowl with a cloth and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. OR Do ALL these steps in a bread machine set on manual or dough cycle.
  4. Remove from the bowl and knead in 1/2 cup flour. Knead about 10 times. Divide into three equal parts.
  5. Place in greased and floured loaf pans or shape into rolls. Cover and place in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or golden brown.
