The Allure of Hawaiian Bread

Hawaiian bread is synonymous with comfort and a touch of the exotic.

Homemade Hawaiian bread is not just a delicious addition to your table; it's a sensory journey that captures the essence of the islands and brings a little sunshine to every meal.

Essential Ingredients for Your Hawaiian Bread

Before we delve into the recipe, let's gather the essential ingredients. For homemade Hawaiian bread, you'll need all-purpose flour, active dry yeast, pineapple juice, sugar, butter, eggs, and a touch of milk powder. These simple yet crucial components come together to create a sweet and fluffy bread that's like a slice of paradise on your plate.

Hawaiian Bread Recipe


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast

  • 1 cup pineapple juice, room temperature

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and active dry yeast.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the room-temperature pineapple juice and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved.

  3. Add the melted butter, eggs, milk powder, and salt to the pineapple juice mixture. Stir well to combine.

  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough forms.

  5. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 6-8 minutes until it's smooth and elastic.

  6. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel, and let it rise for about 1-2 hours, or until it has doubled in size.

  7. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  8. Punch down the risen dough and divide it into two equal portions.

  9. Shape each portion into a loaf and place them in greased 9x5-inch loaf pans.

  10. Cover the pans with kitchen towels and let the dough rise for an additional 20-30 minutes.

  11. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

  12. Allow the Hawaiian bread to cool in the pans for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  13. Slice, serve, and savor your homemade Hawaiian bread, a taste of paradise in every bite.
