Sunday Baking: Hawaiian Bread

July 24, 2011

We all recognize the orange packaging of the Hawaiian sweet rolls that you buy from the grocery store.  We bring them to outdoor barbecues and picnics or may even pick up a package for Thanksgiving dinner.  As I often like to do, I wanted to make the homemade version of this Hawaiian bread.  This recipe turns out a sweet bread that has a buttery yellow dough rich with flavor (the specialty ingredient is pineapple juice). I like to nestle bbq pork between two slices for an easy but delicious sandwich.   If you bake this bread, be prepared for a crowd because it will be eaten in minutes.
