Love the store bought? You’ll like these even better!
I love King’s Hawaiian rolls. Doesn’t everybody???
Unfortunately, I can only get them in Aldi and Aldi doesn’t always have them (maybe lucky for my butt LOL). So I went looking for a recipe and a recipe where I had all the ingredients.
Many recipes vary wildly in ingredients–going from pineapple juice to crushed pineapple to even condensed milk and no pineapple. Yikes, try to decide. Anyway I found one that looked simple and easily adaptable for bread machines, where I will make this in future. The recipe I used came from Noreen’s Kitchen.
I made 1/2 this recipe. The way I divided the eggs was used 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk. I reserved the white for brushing the tops of the rolls. However, after I did this, I do not recommend it. Most recipes call for brushing with melted butter AFTER they finish baking and after trying mine, I see why the other recipes call for doing that–it makes the roll softer and since the rolls are already baked, they will not slightly deflate from the pressure of a pastry brush. Anyone following me making these via my Facebook fan page knows this story and why I don’t recommend it. However, the rolls tasted WONDERFUL and was well worth the effort.
