6 cups all purpose flour; plus extra flour
3 Eggs
2 cups pineapple juice
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4-oz packs yeast
1/2 stick unsalted butter; melted

Original recipe makes 8



In a heavy duty stand mixer, beat the eggs then add the pineapple juice, sugar, ginger, vanill, and butter. Put 3 cups flour, iIn a seperate bowl. Using the dough hook slowly add the egg mixture. Mix until well combined the add yeast one packet at a time. Add the remaining 3 cups flour and mix until thoroughly combined. Cover the bowl with a cloth and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.

Remove from the bowl and knead in 1/2 c flour. Knead about 10 times. Shape into rolls or loafs. Place in greased and floured loaf pans. Cover and place in a warm area and let rise another hour.

Can I omit or replace the salted butter? That's the only ingredient I don't have on hand and I really want to try it today

Wow! This is a really good recipe. I had a square baking pan that I used, which meant I had to turn the over lower and keep it in for longer. This bread got better each day (which it only lasted 3 days) My family couldn't stop eating it! I would make it again and again.

Made this recipe but did two loaves instead of rolls. Came out very tasty!

Awesome Bread! This recipe turned out to be real easy. I tried it with my dough hook on my Kitchen Aid, ended up using a regular mixer to finish it.

It turned out a little too pineappley in flavor and not quite as sweet as I'm used to. Otherwise it's a great recipe.

If you prepare this in a bread machine, spray the top with cooking spray. This dough is a big riser. [I posted this recipe.]
