Homemade King Hawaiian Rolls

This was a fun and different roll recipe. I have always wanted to know what made Hawaiian Rolls so sweet. I wonder if this is really it! The family all loved them!

Homemade King Hawaiian Rolls

•6 ¼ cups bread purpose flour plus more if needed •3 eggs •2 cups pineapple juice, warmed to about 120 degrees •3/4 cup sugar •1 teaspoon vanilla •1 Tablespoons or 1 package of yeast •1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) butter, melted

In a mixing bowl with a dough hook attachment, beat your eggs, and add the 2 cups pineapple juice, sugar, vanilla, and melted butter.

Measure 3 cups of the flour into the bowl. Sprinkle in the yeast on top of the flour. Stir until well-combined. Let sit for 15 minutes.

Add the remaining 3 ¼ cups of flour and mix well. 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. Knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove the dough hook and cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and set it in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.

Form the dough into rolls, or loaf. Place in buttered13 x 9 pan. Cover and place in warm place to rise for an additional hour, or until the dough doubles in size.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush tops with more butter, and serve warm.
