Sweet, buttery, homemade Hawaiian Sweet Rolls are super soft and fluffy infused with pineapple juice and slathered in butter! Their light tropical flavor makes these tender golden rolls ideal for sliders, potlucks and special occasions like Thanksgiving!
Whenever I think homemade sliders, I think Hawaiian Sweet Rolls.
I used to think King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. Now I think these homemade big, beautiful Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. And I get giddy.
Hawaiian Sweet Rolls have always been one of my favorite rolls so to create the perfect homemade Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, I turned to the experts, Cooks Country, America’s Test Kitchen sister company. I slightly adapted their recipe to create what I think are better-than-store bought big, golden Hawaiian Sweet Rolls that are melt in your mouth addicting.
These rolls are infused with pineapple juice, honey, brown sugar, vanilla and splash of vinegar for a slightly sweet, slightly tangy tropical flavor. The pineapple juice lends these rolls its subtly fruity sweet flavor enhanced by the vanilla all balanced by the vinegar’s subtle sharpness. The dough itself is incredibly rich and more dense than traditional rolls while still incredibly tender and fluffy at the same time. The secret to nice fluffy rolls is letting them rise and double in size and this dough has two rises which also helps develop the tropical flavor.
Brush the dough balls with butter before baking to help bake to golden perfection and infuse with flavor then brush the rolls again once baked to keep them soft and of course, infuse them with more buttery deliciousness.
And dig into warm soft and tender sweet, buttery tropical rolls. Eat them plain, slather with more butter, douse in honey or pile high with Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken, Slow Cooker BBQ Pork or Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes. Because homemade is always better. way better.
