Hawaiian Sweet Rolls are flavorful and versatile!

These Hawaiian sweet rolls are made with pineapples and brown sugar. These are great to eat warm straight out of the oven, they’re sweet and pillowy. However if you stuff them with ham and gruyere cheese, even better. WAY BETTER. These are some of my favorite rolls, I’ve even made stuffing with them. I hope you give these little sweeties a try and make some cheeseburger sliders *yum* or just eat them as is.

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup crushed pineapples drained
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 tsp dry active yeast
  • 2 eggs

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water


  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, stir the yeast into the warm milk (110 degrees) and let it sit for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Once the yeast is nice and foamy go ahead and beat in the eggs, olive oil, melted butter, brown sugar, crushed pineapples, and salt.
  • Add the all purpose flour to the yeast mixture, and knead with the dough hook. Mix for 8-10 minutes until the dough is slightly tacky.
  • Flour your work surface and knead the dough with your hands for a couple extra seconds
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover and let it sit in a warm place for about an hour or until it doubles in size.
  • Place the risen dough on your floured work surface and divide the dough into 12 pieces.
  • Shape the dough pieces into dinner rolls by tucking the edges underneath.
  • Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan and place the balls of dough spaced a little apart. Cover and let it rise in a warm place for an additional 40 minutes or until doubled in size
  • Brush the risen balls of dough with the egg wash and place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until fully cooked through.
  • Brush with a little melted butter and enjoy
