Love King’s Hawaiian Rolls? Try my Hawaiian Dinner Rolls! They are sweet, fluffy and best of all, homemade from an easy from scratch recipe!
- 3/4 Cup Warm Water
- 1 Tbs. Active Dry Yeast
- 2 Tbs. Sugar
- 3 Tbs. Honey
- 3/4 Cup Pineapple Juice
- 4 Tbs. room temperature Butter
- 1 1/2 tsp Salt
- 4–5 Cups Flour
- 1 Tbs. Honey
- 1 Tbs. Butter
- In the mixing bowl, on a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, mix the warm water, 2 Tbs. sugar and the yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Add the 3 Tbs. Honey, pineapple juice, 4 Tbs. butter, salt and 4 cups of the flour.
- Mix with the dough hook until well combined. Add additional flour 1/4 cup at a time until your dough is only a little sticky to the touch even though it’s going to look really sticky. The dough will not clean the bottom or sides of the bowl or come together in a ball. You may not need all the additional flour. See my pictures in my post for a visual aid.
- Knead at medium speed for 3 minutes. Remove the dough hook and cover with a dish towel to let rise.
- This is a slower rising dough, allow an hour to an hour and a half for this dough to double.
- Dump onto a well floured surface and knead just a couple times. Divide in 15 equal pieces. Shape them into balls and place them in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Cover and allow to rise until doubled (about an hour). Once again, this will be slower than you would expect.
- When about doubled, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and mix the tablespoon of honey and tablespoon of butter together. Set the honey butter aside.
- Bake the rolls at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. The tops should be golden brown. Immediately brush the tops with the honey butter. Cool slightly before eating.
- Store lightly covered to allow a little bit of air flow.
