Servings 12

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 whole eggs lightly beaten
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 teaspoons 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 large egg for brushing rolls before baking


  1. Combine the pineapple juice and milk in a small saucepan. Heat until temperature reaches 110°F. Add in yeast and let activate for 10 minutes. The mixture should be foamy.

  3. Add 2 cups of the flour to the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until the the flour is incorporated.
  4. Attach the dough hook to the mixer and turn to medium-low speed. Gradually add the remaining flour, kneading until a ball begins to form and scraps away from the bowl.
  5. Continue kneading on medium-high speed for 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Remove dough from bowl, shape into a ball, and place back in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  7. Grease a 13×9-inch baking pan. Remove the dough and gently deflate.
  8. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place in the prepared pan.
  9. In a small bowl combine the egg with 2 tablespoons of water. Brush all over the rolls. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise again until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  10. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
