OK... Here's what I did...

Better Than HAWAIIAN SWEET ROLLS (Bread Machine EASY!)

  • 1 Cup Pineapple Juice (Room Temperature)
  • 1 Large Egg (Room Temperature)
  • 1/3 Cup Milk (Room Temperature)
  • 4 TBS Butter
  • 2 tsp Coconut Extract
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 3-1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 packet (2-1/4 tsp) Yeast
  • For Garnish, Melted Butter for brushing the tops
Cooking Directions
  1. Everything needs to be room temperature in order for the yeast to work it's magic. You can rush the process in a microwave burst of 5-10 second intervals, but do not get the ingredients too hot and especially be careful with the egg. Best to set the ingredients out for a couple of hours before starting.
  2. Add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed.
  3. Run the bread machine on "Dough" setting.
  4. After the cycle has finished, leave the dough in the machine for an additional hour to rise.
  5. Grease a casserole dish (9X13). Slice the dough into 16 equal size portions. Roll into balls and set them in the pan.
  6. Cover with a towel and allow the final rise for about an hour until the rolls have filled the bottom of the pan and are all touching.Bake rolls in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and brush the melted butter on the top.
  8. Let cool slightly and serve warm (maybe add a little Honey) and ENJOY!!!


This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
