12 rolls


  • 1 cup pineapple juice

  • cup milk

  • 1 large egg

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract

  • 3 ½ cups bread flour

  • ½ cup dry potato flakes

  • cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast


  1. Place pineapple juice, milk, egg, butter, coconut extract, bread flour, potato flakes, sugar, salt, ginger, and yeast in a bread machine in the order listed, or according to manufacturer's instructions. Run Dough cycle. Remove dough after cycle has ended, about 1 hour.

  2. Form dough into rolls, place on a baking sheet, and let rise for 1 hour.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use vanilla extract instead of coconut.

You can freeze individual rolls before baking. Simply thaw frozen rolls and let rise. Bake as instructed.

We discovered that we like these rolls to be baked apart rather than squished in a pan like in my photo.
