Homemade Hawaiian Bread

I am a firm believer that homemade is always better than store bought, and this hawaiian bread is no different. Once you try it, you will never go back.

Bread baking has become a Sunday ritual for me. I bake a few loves each weekend to get us through the week, and this Hawaiian bread is the kids’ favorite. It bakes up super soft, slightly sweet, and is the perfect loaf for toast and sandwiches.

Recipe Type: Baking, Bread
Ingredients
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup milk, warm
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 envelope active dry yeast, I prefer Red Star Platinum yeast
  • 3 - 3½ cups flour
Instructions
  1. combine pineapple juice, milk, melted butter, egg, sugar,vanilla, salt, and yeast
  2. stir in 3 cups of flour,
  3. knead, adding additional flour if needed, until you have a soft, smooth ball of dough (about 5 minutes if using the dough hook of a stand mixer)
  4. cover, and let rise until doubled - about 1 hour
  5. grease a standard loaf pan
  6. punch down dough, press into a rectangle, fold into thirds (top over middle, and then bottom over top), and place seam side down in prepared pan
  7. cover and let rise 45 minutes
  8. heat oven to 350 degrees
  9. bake 20 - 25 minutes until the top is dark golden brown
  10. cool in pan 5 minutes, and then turn out onto a rack to complete cooling
Notes
This Hawaiian bread can also easily be made into rolls – after the first rising, simply divide the dough into 16 pieces, roll, and place in a greased baking dish, cover and rise 45 minutes, and then bake @350 for 15-20 minutes.

  1. I just put the yeast dry into the wet ingredients. I do warm up the pineapple juice up slightly. This bread is delicious. Just made some today
