How to Make Bread Machine Sweet Hawaiian Rolls
Place all the ingredients in the bread machine pan, in the order listed in the recipe.
Note: Use store bought pineapple juice, not freshly squeezed pineapple juice.
Tip: If you buy a 20 ounce can of pineapple chunks in juice, it’s the exact amount of juice you need for these rolls, plus you get the bonus of eating the pineapple chunks for a snack – win win!
Set the bread machine to ‘dough cycle’ and press ‘start’.
When done, remove the dough from the bread machine and place it on a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into equal sized round balls. As you can see, my dough balls aren’t perfect, but that’s ok because once they rise you aren’t going to see their imperfections.
Place each dough ball side by side in a baking dish. Cover and let the dough rise for an hour.
It’s always a bit magical when you see the before and after of dough rising, isn’t it? Here’s the rolls after 1 hour of rising.
Bake until the rolls are golden brown.
Remove from the oven and cool before serving. Enjoy!

Bread Machine Sweet Hawaiian Rolls FAQs
Should butter be melted for bread machine?
If the recipe you’re using calls for melted butter, yes, use melted butter. However, some recipes suggest using slices of butter without melting them. Be sure to double-check what each recipe suggests. For this recipe specifically, melt butter before adding it to the bread machine.
Are Hawaiian sweet rolls the same as brioche?
While brioche and sweet rolls are similar because they are both made with enriched dough, Hawaiian rolls are much sweeter because of the pineapple juice used in their recipe. Unfortunately, brioche rolls aren’t as exciting in flavor but still just as delicious!
Why isn’t my sweet bread dough rising?
Possible reasons your sweet bread dough is not rising is that your yeast is expired or the room isn’t warm enough. If your room isn’t warm enough for the dough to rise and your oven has a “bread proof” setting, use this to rise dough!
Another reason could be that you measured out too much sugar. Sugar absorbs moisture in dough therefore the yeast won’t be able to feed on it if the liquid disappears. If you’re not sure what to do with your bread that hasn’t risen, feel free to roll it out and use it to bake a flatbread pizza. No need for it to go to waste!
What is the sweet bread setting on bread machine?
If your bread machine has a ‘sweet bread’ setting, this is meant for baking bread with high amounts of sugar, fat, or protein. This can mean baking with eggs, cheese, raisins, or more.
