King’s Hawaiian Rolls copy cat recipe that brings an American dinner favorite to your table as the perfect side. 


Have you ever met anyone that didn’t love a King’s Hawaiian Roll? I don’t think so. Actually, scratch that, i know so. Frankly, if I met someone that doesn’t love their rolls, I would disregard anything they said, thought, did, created, etc.

 

 

 
They’re just flat out, stinking, good. I tried several Hawaiian Roll recipes and this was by far the closest to the real thing. The recipe turned out moist, fluffy, and had layer upon layer of mildly sweet goodness to them.

We had leftovers from every recipe we tried, but this was the only recipe where the leftovers were nearly as good as having them fresh out of the oven. The other recipes, the rolls were almost rocks the next day. These remained ULTRA soft and fluffy. And of course they maintained their beautiful flavor as well throughout the proceeding days after baking conception.

 

Try this recipe out at home and instantly make your family happy! The real pineapple in the dough does wonders for the bread and makes these as compatible to the real thing as you’ll find out there. Enjoy!
