Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

sweet rolls fresh out of the oven in a baking dish

Delicious homemade Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. They’re soft, fluffy and fresh from the oven! These Hawaiian sweet rolls have a tropical flavor perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

  • 8 tbsp butter unsalted and melted (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 egg for egg wash


  • Heat oven to 200 F degrees.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine the melted butter, buttermilk, pineapple juice and brown sugar. Slightly whisk so that it's all combined. Wait a bit until mixture cools a bit (if it's too warm from the melted butter) then add the extracts.
  • Meanwhile, in the bowl of your mixer, combine 3 3/4 cups of flour, yeast, salt and ground ginger. Using the paddle attachment, turn the mixing speed on low and slowly pour in the wet ingredients. Continue mixing while adding the 2 eggs and egg yolk. A sticky dough will begin to form. Switch to the hook attachment and knead the dough for 7-8 minutes, adding 1/4 cup more of flour if necessary. Do note that this is a very sticky dough, so don't add any more than 4 cups of flour total!
  • Once the dough has been kneaded, form into a ball and place in a large metal or glass bowl that has been lightly greased. Cover with a clean towel or plastic wrap, turn OFF your oven, place inside and allow to rise for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in size. I use this trick all the time to speed up the rising time.
  • Once the dough has doubled, remove and gently deflate. Divide into 15 equal pieces. Roll into circles and place in a parchment lined 9x13 pan. Heat oven to 200 degrees. Generously butter the tops and sides of each roll. Place a clean kitchen towel over top. Turn OFF your oven and place the covered rolls inside to rise until doubled in size.
  • Remove the rolls from the oven and turn on your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brush the rolls with egg. Once heated, bake the rolls for 22-25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown in color.
  • Remove from the oven. Another option is to skip brushing them with the egg wash and bake them, then brush them with melted butter once out of the oven.
