  • 12 cup pineapple juice
  • 4 tablespoons sugar

  4. Put butter in Pineapple juice and microwave for about a minute till butter is melted.

  9. If working by hand fold dough out on dusted service and work dough by hand "first folding one way, then the other. work for about 5, or 6 minutes.

  12. You don't want it to stick to the bowl as it begins to rise or it will deflate.
  13. Cover with damp towel and place in a warm area to rise. ( top of fridge works good).

I just made these. They don't taste anything like King's Hawaiian rolls. They are so bland--needs more salt. The texture is coarse, yet gummy. All I had was skim milk, but I don't see how only 1/4 cup would make a difference in texture (also, the recipe did not specify one way or the other). I'm disappointed, because I am tired of wasting time and ingredients on bread recipes that don't come out right. I followed the recipe exactly.
