Hawaiian Sweet Rolls have always been one of my favorite rolls so to create the perfect. These rolls are infused with pineapple juice, honey, brown sugar, vanilla and splash of vinegar for a slightly sweet, slightly tangy tropical flavor. The pineapple juice lends these rolls its subtly fruity sweet flavor enhanced by the vanilla all balanced by the vinegar’s subtle sharpness. The dough itself is incredibly rich and more dense than traditional rolls while still incredibly tender and fluffy at the same time. The secret to nice fluffy rolls is letting them rise and double in size and this dough has two rises which also helps develop the tropical flavor.
Dig into warm soft and tender sweet, buttery tropical rolls. Eat them plain, slather with more butter, douse in honey.
