Hawaiian buns are very popular here in the Northern CA. I see them sold at every supermarket and bakery here. It is basically a sweet soft roll. I Google for the recipe and found there are quite a few of it out there. Some have the additions of potato flakes and coconut in it. In the end I settle for the recipe which I had all the ingredients in my pantry. Below is the recipe I adapted from Yammie’s Noshery however I substitute a cup of whole wheat flour to the dough and with some minor changes.
We love this bread as they were soft and very fragrant. It remains soft the next day but on the 3rd day it did harden up a bit but 20 seconds in the microwave it is as soft as they are out of the oven. It tastes so good with some butter, coconut jam or fruit jam.
