Pineapple Sweet Rolls Recipe

Pat Walter of Pine Island, Minnesota relates, "A pan of these marvelous rolls makes any breakfast a holiday!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:30 servings


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs and 1-1/3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add orange juice. Stir in remaining filling ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool.
  • 4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each half into a 15-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spread filling evenly over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 1-in. rolls. Place with cut side down into two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 5. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. Cool. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over rolls. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

"Absolutely delicious!!!! Makes quite a lot of mix though - might half it when making again. Tried making the dough in a bread machine and it turned out runny - i had to add loads of flour into it!!! Turned out as a 4-5lb loaf in the end!!!"
