This homemade Hawaiian bread recipe is a delicious and fluffy bread that is perfect for sandwiches, toast, or just enjoying on its own. The sweet flavor and soft texture make it a crowd favorite and a must-try for any bread lover.


  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 5-6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the pineapple juice until warm but not hot. Stir in the sugar and butter until melted.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm pineapple juice mixture. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  3. Add 4 cups of flour and the salt to the yeast mixture. Mix until a sticky dough forms.
  4. Gradually add more flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes on a floured surface.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  6. Punch down the dough and divide it into two equal parts. Shape each part into a round loaf and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Cover the loaves with a kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the loaves for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  9. Let the bread cool before slicing and serving.
