Copy Cat Kings Hawaiian Rolls- Bread maker Version
  • 1 cup pineapple juice warmed to about 115 degrees
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb 1.9 ounces bread flour (3⅜ cups bread flour)
  • 2¼ teaspoon quick rise yeast
  1. Add all ingredients to the bread maker pan in the order listed.
  2. Turn your bread maker to the dough setting. (it should be about one hour and 30 minutes)
  3. Push start and do whatever you like for the next hour and a half :)
  4. When the bread maker alerts you that it is done, remove the dough and put it on a lightly floured surface.
  5. The dough is well formed but just a little sticky, just how I like it. Again I use the scale and divide the dough in half by weight, and continue dividing it until you have 12 equal sized balls. Mine were in the 2.6 to 2.7 ounce size.
  6. Take each ball and form it into the nicest, smoothest ball that you can. This is a skill that will come with time, but they will taste great even if your first batch isn't as beautiful as you want it to be.
  7. Grease a 9 by 13 inch pan and place the balls evenly spaced in the pan.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  9. Cover the pan with a clean tea towel and set on top of the oven to rise for 60-90 minutes.
  10. Brush them with a little melted butter.
  11. Bake for about 25 minutes, you want them to be nicely browned and done in the middle so don't rush them.
  12. Brush them with melted butter one more time.
  13. Enjoy!
