Combine butter and buttermilk and heat in the microwave. Then use a stand mixer with paddle attachment to combine the buttermilk mixture with the instant yeast, and let it rest. Add pineapple juice, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and eggs, and mix to combine. Gradually add flour and mix until a dough forms, and then knead the dough into a soft, smooth ball. Place the dough in a large mixing bowl that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray, and cover it with plastic wrap. Let it rise until it has doubled in size (about 1 hour). Divide the dough into 15 balls of dough, and place them in a 9×13 pan that’s been covered with nonstick spray. Cover and let rise until doubled in size (about 30 minutes). Preheat oven to 375F while the dough rises. Whisk together egg whites and water to make an egg wash, and brush it onto the tops of the rolls. Bake 20-25 minutes. What’s in Hawaiian sweet rolls?

What do you eat with Hawaiian rolls?
These rolls go with absolutely everything. They pair well with any meal, from chicken to pork or turkey. I love serving them on holidays, but they are just as good for everyday meals.
There are so many fun recipes to take these up a notch, so be sure to try them topped with homemade garlic butter, or make delicious ham and cheese sliders.
How long do these rolls last?
These sweet rolls will go fast around the dinner table, but if you have any leftover, be sure to save them.
Keep them in an airtight container or resealable bag and store at room temperature for 2-4 days. You can also freeze the dough before baking, or freeze fully baked rolls.
Tips! I recommend using instant yeast for this recipe, as it’s the easiest method. Using a stand up mixer with a dough hook will make this recipe much easier, but you can knead the dough by hand if needed. Plan ahead with this recipe, because the dough will need time to rise before baking. Rising times may vary, so make sure the dough doubles in size each time.
Make these homemade Hawaiian rolls for your next meal and everyone will be happy. Add a pat of homemade honey butter and you’ll really be in heaven!

Print Hawaiian Rolls Recipe They're fresh, fluffy, and so delicious! These Hawaiian sweet bread rolls are the perfect thing to serve with any dinner. Course Bread Cuisine American Prep Time 20 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes Total Time 50 minutes Servings 15 people Calories 55kcal Author Becky Hardin – The Cookie Rookie Ingredients ½ cup buttermilk 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened 2 1/4 teaspoons 1 packet instant yeast ½ cup pineapple juice ⅓ cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk lightly beaten (white reserved) 4 1/2 – 5 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon water Instructions Spray a large mixing bowl and a 9×13 baking pan lightly with nonstick spray. Set aside. Combine the buttermilk and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave in 20 second increments until the mixture is warmed to ~115 degrees F. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, whisk together buttermilk mixture and yeast. Allow to rest for 10 minutes. Add the pineapple juice, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and eggs. stirring on low until combined. Gradually add in 2 cups of flour and mix on medium speed for 1 minute. Continue adding the rest of the flour on low speed until a soft dough forms. Add more flour if necessary. Replace the paddle attachment with a dough hook and knead on medium speed for 5-6 minutes until the dough forms a soft, smooth ball. Alternately, you can do this by hand for 8-10 minutes. Place the dough into the prepared bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a clean towel. Place in a warm spot in your kitchen and allow to rise for 1 hour*, until doubled. Remove the dough from the bowl and divide it into 15 equal pieces. Round the dough into balls and place them in the prepared pan. Cover and rest for 30 minutes*, until doubled. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Whisk together the reserved egg white and 1 teaspoon water. Lightly brush the tops of the rolls with the egg wash. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Notes Sweet doughs often take a bit longer to rise due to the higher sugar content. Use your own judgement on rising times – keep an eye on the size of the dough/rolls before proceeding on to the next time, ensuring that it has doubled in size.
