10 rolls


  • 1 6 ounce can pineapple juice (3/4 cup)

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 3 tablespoon milk

  • 2 tablespoon canola oil

  • 3 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cup bread flour (360 g)

  • 1 ½ teaspoon instant (bread machine) yeast

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • 2 tablespoon sweetened flaked coconut, toasted (optional)

  • 2 tablespoon chopped roasted macadamia nuts (optional)


  1. Measure out 1 tablespoon pineapple juice; set aside for glaze. Add remaining pineapple juice and next seven ingredients (through yeast) to a 1 1/2- or 2-lb. bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions. Select the dough cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough. Punch down. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

  2. Coat a 9x1 1/2-inch round baking pan with cooking spray. Divide dough into ten portions. Shape each portion into a ball and place in the prepared baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (45 minutes).

  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

  4. For glaze, in a bowl stir together powdered sugar and reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Spoon glaze over warm rolls and, if using sprinkle with coconut and macadamia nuts. Serve warm.
