Hawaiian Rolls

The first time I had Hawaiian bread was when I visited my sister in Houston in 2012 , we were in this supermarket and sis said to me Finla these breads are so soft a bit like our Kerala bakery bread and she bought a pack.
Of course her son Vishal love these bread too that he and I ended up eating ( Hogging) the whole lot.
So I have been wanting to make these bread from the time when I came back . And was looking for a good recipe.

The moment I saw this recipe in this blog Milk and Honey I knew I was going to make this Hawaiian Rolls as they were looking super soft and so delicious.

And must say they were really so so good.
If i could I would have eaten in one go more than I had ate :-) if I had ate more I think I would have also had to do running and squats like she does, and I do really wish I did so I could eat more of these delicious bread.
The recipe I have given is from her place and I have written what I changes, actually didn't change that much.
I think the bread is eaten the best the day itself of making them.

You should check out Milk and Honey blog , she has so much delicious dishes that I am sure I will be visiting her place to make few other dishes from her place.

How to make them.

Recipe Copied from Milk and Honey

Sweet Buns - aka Hawaiian Rolls

500g "00" flour (a little more or a little less) and some for dusting on the work surface ( Use White bread flour)
1 large egg
250ml pineapple juice, room temperature
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger ( I added more grated ginger)
1 scant teaspoon fine sea salt
7g (1 sachet) dried yeast
60g unsalted butter, melted
Egg wash - (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of water)
30g unsalted butter, melted for brushing

Grease a 20 x 30 baking pan. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, pineapple juice, sugar, ginger, vanilla and melted butter. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, dump in about half the flour (no need to measure, just eyeball it) and the salt. Add the egg mixture and mix on low until roughly incorporated. Sprinkle in the yeast and mix. Add the remaining flour and mix until you have a slightly tacky dough. If it's too wet, add a little more flour a tablespoon at a time. Scrape the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover. Leave to double in size for about an hour. (Mine took almost one and half hour to double up)

Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead briefly. Add more flour if the dough if it's too sticky, but only enough to make it manageable. Divide the dough into 15 even portions. Roll the portions into balls and place them in the baking tray. Cover and leave them to double in bulk for another hour or so.

Preheat the oven to 180 C.

Brush the tops of the balls with egg wash and bake for 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown. Brush tops with melted butter and serve warm
