Honey Pineapple Pull-Apart Rolls #BreadBakers

Honey Pineapple Pull-Apart Rolls

Honey Pineapple Pull-Apart Rolls dish up tender, soft rolls great with salads, meats or wherever your meal takes you.

Baking fresh rolls takes me back to my first days in the bakery class. Every day we started early getting the dough ready. Weighing flour and molasses, mixing, kneading, shaping baking and finishing.

White, wheat, rye, sourdough breads all had their own nuances. Subtle recipe changes make each one different yet it is still bread.

It’s that way with rolls. You can shape them into knots, balls, clovers or sticks. You can even put them in the same pan.

Bake them. Then pull them apart again!

Honey Pineapple Pull-Apart Rolls are made without processed sugar for this month’s Bread Bakers challenge!

July Challenge:

Bake using Natural Sweeteners that are a healthy and tasty alternative to refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners (Splenda, saccharin, aspartame, etc). Some of the natural sweeteners are maple syrup, honey, blackstrap molasses, dates, banana puree, coconut sugar, balsamic glaze, brown sugar syrup, real fruit jam made without any sugar, stevia, palm jaggery. Use any one or a combination of the natural sweeteners in your bake. NO SUGAR, white, brown, demerara, turbinado, muscovado etc to be used in the bake.

Honey Pineapple Pull-Apart Rolls get their fruity goodness from a layer of minced pineapple and honey in oil.

Brush cooled rolls with the mixture and serve. Your family can pull apart as many rolls as they like.

These rolls also taste great spread with gobs of jam!
