Copycat King’s Hawaiian rolls – these are easy to make with full video tutorial. Sweet, delicious and always a hit at dinner.
THANKSGIVING IS A WEEK AWAY! yay! My favorite day of the year is so very close I can’t wait! SO I’m obsessed with bread – esp dinner rolls, but it’s the one thing I don’t have a favorite of!
I have my Favorite way to cook a Turkey, my favorite Gravy, Potatoes, etc… BUT I’m constantly experimenting with rolls! THESE were the HIT of last years Thanksgiving AND I’m repeating them this year they were SO good!
So these are actually a Kings Hawaiian copycat recipe! Anyone else a huge fan! As much as I love baking bread rolls are the one thing I often simply buy since I didn’t have a favorite!
And this brand has been my go to, but NOW I can make my own, WINNING! Slightly sweet with a hint of Hawaii from the pineapple juice – my kids DEVOURED these – making a quadruple batch this year!
I love making videos so you can SEE the texture you want the dough – literally this is sticky! I’ve learned from years of tough rolls that you simply can’t add so much flour that the dough is easy to handle – sticky = soft rolls, so go with it! embrace messy hands!
To watch me make these sweet hawaiian rolls in a recipe video play the video in the recipe card. There should also be a short teaser auto playing for you.
